“Jim DeKorne expertly weaves together diverse threads…into a coherent vision of the challenges and potential that inhabit our modern psyche.”—Erowid
“The collection of sources, woven together by DeKorne’s keen intellect, becomes, not so much eclectic, as a multifaceted view of a numinous path unfolding in a common language of the Perennial Philosophy. This is a good book, intellectually stimulating, with diverse and always relevant quotations.”—
Circles of Light
"This is an interesting philosophical exploration of two opposing views of the world- materialist vs. perennial. One holds that what you see is what you get, the other that there is more to life than meets the eye and that we are all a part of the divine being… If you are interested in philosophy and spirituality, you will find it a fascinating read." —
