The Intersection of Ancient Wisdom and Modern Bewilderment


Most mystics throughout history were known to have  theological connections before they were given sight into Divine realms.  They were nuns, priests, monks, yogis, seekers, or experienced followers of some kind of faith.

I, however, was given sight into Divine realms without any understanding of, or interest in, religious teachings. Unwitting Mystic is the firsthand account of what happens when an ordinary person is given extraordinary wisdom that challenges, and eventually changes, everything in their world.

Unwitting Mystic follows the collapse of a successful executive life in Washington, DC and the rise of an unexpected monastic life in India, frequently veering into otherworldly realms to reveal encounters with God, Jesus, Buddha and angels.  As the incredible scale of these mystical visions and insights unfolds, so does the extent of my confusion in trying to understand who I am, why these events keep happening, and what I am supposed to do with all I know.

Ultimately, Unwitting Mystic is a profound story of survival, self acceptance and resurrection that parallels what is unfolding in our spiritually awakening world today.

“I was dumbfounded by how unthinkably vast your knowing is. I kept having to stop reading for a moment to take in the words, and sometimes just to cry because it is so clear you know. You really know what most of us only try to believe.” Tenzin P., San Francisco, CA
