No matter which way we choose, we are all traveling our own path of adventure. Passages: Timeless Voyages of Spirit explores moments when people are fully engaged in or caught unaware by the business of living. This anthology of essays, poetry, and stories combines the whimsy one finds in fairytales with the realities of life-changing events. Breaking out of predictable routine, the authors of this collection discover unexpected vistas of youth, middle age, and beyond. Through imaginative interplay of past and present, coupled with moments of self-awareness, the stories, essays, and poetry of Passages lead to watershed events and a new understanding of who we are.

“The arts often predate scientific discovery and give us glimpses into the deeper realities of existence. This anthology weaves a vision that is often overlooked as we pursue the business of living and offers important insights for healers.”

—Dr. Mehmet Oz, author of Healing from the Heart and You: The Owner’s Manual

“Spiritual depth and literary mastery are beautifully combined in this newest offering of the Chrysalis Reader. For me, spiritual writings are valuable if they help awaken me to wise and compassionate living. This collection is a treasury of such pointers.”

—Larry Rosenberg, founder of Cambridge Insight Meditation Center
