Most of us set out on the Jeweled Highway, whether we know it or not. We live at a time when the quest for meaning is an enormous force in the inner lives of millions of men and women. It is a key feature of our age, often hidden beneath the distractions of modern civilization. This is a memoir, filled with beauty, transcendence and vitality, of a search to find the secrets of life and give them to others. It is a gripping narrative of a life at the forefront of the consciousness movement, the holistic impulse to transform our culture that is a subtle but powerful force in the gradual emergence of a more sacred and ecological civilization.The story takes the reader from childhood in the Celtic world, through adolescence in gritty Northern England, to the outburst of freedom in the Sixties. After arriving in America, the author unexpectedly embarks on a spiritual quest into a new worldview, an opening to the mystical, and the beginning of a life dedicated to the creation of a new culture. On this luminous journey of awakening and commitment, we take that trip down Route 66, hitchhike to Maccu Picchu, cross the Eastern Himalayas into Tibet, and experience Russia and Eastern Europe in the aftermath of communism. We also gain an insider's knowledge of the origins of major centers of holistic learning like the New York Open Center, Omega Institute and the Findhorn Foundation in Scotland. How did these centers, that have served as such focal points for positive change, come from nowhere in their early years? And how are they part of a worldwide emergence of points of holistic learning all intent on bringing greater sanity, wisdom and awareness to the world?This is a new story for our time by a pioneer in a global movement. From the remote Welsh shoreline to the hectic streets of New York City, mixing adventure and enlightenment, this contemporary odyssey takes readers on an archetypal quest with honesty, humor and spiritual insight.
