"The book reads smoothly and its lessons come across with a sense of personal discovery, creating an intimate experience for the reader. It is what I like to call a 'trigger' book. Reading it triggers knowledge you hold within yourself, it resonates with the truths buried deep inside, and awakens parts of you by allowing you to remember that you already knew all of this. If I could put one book in the hands of everyone today, this would be the book." --BookReview.com
"A fascinating premise, and the author really knows his subject." --St. Martin's Press
"A groundbreaking experiment in consciousness-oriented fiction. And a serious page-turner. Imagine 1984 meets The Celestine Prophecy and add the edgy interior monologue of an angsty twentysomething on a mystical quest, and you get Maya. What happens when she wakes up? The whole world does, too." --Adam Elenbaas, author of Fishers of Men: The Gospel of an Ayahuasca Vision Quest
"Goldie's work is on the leading edge of our human growth into new realms of understanding." --Robert F. Butts, co-author of Seth Speaks
"A visionary pageturner." --The Iowa Source
"Goldie's synthesis of several evocative theories enlightens right up to the riveting conclusion. I know of no other novel that tackles existential issues with such creativity, optimism, and joy." --Judith Landau, M.D., Sr. Fulbright Scholar
From the Inside Flap
When Maya Burke starts digging a grave in her backyard to bury
her dead cat, her shovel clinks on something beneath the ground. It's a metal
box -- with an old journal in it. Its writer, she discovers, is her father, who vanished mysteriously when Maya was an infant. As she reads
through the brittle pages, his story is revealed -- as is hers -- but there's far more to this treasure than meets the eye. The journal presents a spiritual journey he has developed specifically for her. As Maya delves into its wisdom and teachings, her life begins to change in remarkable ways ...
Across a rapidly changing physical and psychological landscape, Maya's journey
propels her from an off-the-grid community in the remote mountains to an
ultra-secret spying program in Washington D.C., to a shattering revelation at one of the Earth's power vortexes of native tradition. Along the way, Maya
unravels the secrets of her past and encounters the awesome power of a global
change in the making.
Waking Maya is a probing examination into the question of how and why the
events of our lives occur as they do. Journey with Maya on a thrilling, wisdom-packed quest to understand the deepest principles of our reality.
