Everything you wanted to know about spirituality, quantum physics and the meaning of life, condensed into 400 pages. It's quite slow at the start, for about the first 120 pages, but after that it's an intriguing and thought-provoking read. For myself, I know it wil be something I will refer to on occasion for the rest of my life. Well worth reading at least once.
Title: Going Deeper Author: Jean-Claude Koven Publisher: Prism House Press Genre: Self-Help/Spirituality/New Age/Metaphysical Publication date: 2004 ISBN: 0-9723954-5-8 Pages: 430 Edition: Hardcover Going Deeper: How to make sense of your life, when your life makes no sense ~Jean-Claude Koven. Expand your mind, escape your confines and discover your true kind! Poetic, but prophetic! Going Deeper will unlock the shocking secrets of a hidden human race called the Wanderers. Some of who are yet to realise that their human awareness has been distorted as they passed through the Veil of Forgetting and entered the illusion of Earth. Are you one of these beings? This book will help you expand your mind and decide. This book is based around a successful Los Angeles attorney, Larry Randers, who having been through a painful divorce and witnessed the atrocious events of 9/11 2001, starts to question his own existence. Needing space to think, Larry decides to travel to Joshua Tree land with his faithful dog, Zeus, where, through a series of Shamanic style teachings Larry is opened up to a world much bigger than he ever imagined, a matrix beyond the normal realm of reality as he knew it. Are you a loner rather than a joiner? Do you rebel against religion or gravitate toward Eastern philosophies, like Buddhism and Taosim or the less orthodox beliefs or religions into which you were born? Do you wonder what your purpose in life is, or if there is more to life than what can be seen? If so, perhaps you are a 'Wanderer'. Described by Jean-Claude Koven as beings that have returned to earth on a mission to assist with the impending shift in planetary consciousness. How can we break free from the illusion human beings call 'reality' and remember whom we are? What exactly have we been forced to forget? These are typical questions our star pupil, Larry, ponders throughout the course of this book. Our solar system has moved into a "different area" of space; the size of the sun's heliosphere has increased and so has its plasmic energy field. If that wasn't worrying enough, the atmospheres of five planets (including Earth) have recently undergone shifts in their magnetic pole positions so significantly that the aeronautical maps used by pilots have been revised. The evidence of the shift is unmistakable and, quite frankly, disturbing. But what about the mystic plane you don't see? The part your distorted human awareness blocks out. Jean-Claude Koven is an incredible writer whose parables are full of cleverly designed analogies and metaphors that make perfect, thought provoking sense. Going Deeper is a fascinating, humorous account of one enlightened man's experience and knowledge, which kept my interest throughout. In short it's a self-help book with a difference - an Interplanetary Manual. His teachings are fun, exciting and written from the heart. On the surface this book reads like a cross between a sci-fi fantasy, history and science lesson. There's a talking dog, Zeus, a rapping racoon and numerous other of Larry's sub personalities and strange, but wonderful characters such as Junie the talking tree. However, Going Deeper these characters are key players acting out author Jean-Claudes's profound metaphysical teachings as told with such spiritual enthusiasm I could feel his passion burst from the pages as I read. This spiritual journey should be seen as a parable of the author's real life self-discovery and your personal guide to making sense of our mixed-up world. An insightful book for Wanderers who feel the need to find out more about their purpose in life and escape the boundaries of today's realism we are encased within. Mr Koven concludes this insightful book with a chapter of acknowledgements, followed by suggested explorations, a helpful glossary and finally an index. The result is an extraordinary look into the mind of a man who can help you discover the answers you seek, delivered with a notable style worthy of our attention. This book is definitely a 'keeper' I shall refer to and to cap it all, the cover is gorgeous. The only thing I found quite alarming was the discovery that Zeus the wonderful talking dog is actually real, but stuffed! I shall be asking the author more about this during our future planned interview, alongside some more meaningful questions, of course! Tracy-Jane Alternative-Read.Com

Going Deeper: How To Make Sense Of Your Life When Your Life Makes No Sense is a guide to the seemingly challenging search for the answers to two questions: Who are you? and What is your life purpose? To facilitate the initiation of this very individualized and personalized journey, the author has created the fictionalized story of a man named Larry who examines the answers to these questions. Larry, along with his dog Zeus and a number of very surprising, interesting, and astute new friends, learns to define, feel, and live the answers to these life defining/changing questions.
Going Deeper reads like a fiction novel. The story is smoothly written, intriguing at every step of Larry's journey, and completely entertaining. The characters are unique and extremely well developed. Any reader will find it difficult to put this book down until he or she has completed the story.
Nonetheless, the content contained within this story is much more significant and thought provoking than the average fiction novel. This book impartially examines a wide variety of religious, spiritual, scientific, and psychological ways of thinking while urging the reader to determine for him or herself which one or what combinations of these ways of thinking deeply resonate within him or herself. Moreover, these concepts are presented in a very Socratic fashion, with the main character asking questions or being asked questions and then working through the answers. This method further compels the reader to begin his or her own inner dialogues, disagreeing, agreeing, or learning from each concept discussed. A extremely profound, life altering book.
