“I couldn’t put it down. I took The Adam Enigma with me everywhere, in the car, on walks, and it was absolutely riveting. It is a wonderful combination of page-turning mystery with metaphysical contemplation and really deep spiritual meaning that I found so delicious. I warmly recommend it.” ―Miriam Knight, founder and editor, New Consciousness Review
“Reading the The Adam Enigma by Ron Meyer and Mark Reeder was an exquisite pleasure. I was completely absorbed by the intriguing plot and felt a strong sense of ‘the presence of the other side’ throughout. The protagonist’s search for the deeper meaning of Jesus’ teaching gave the book remarkable spiritual gravitas, while being thoroughly entertaining at the same time. Highly recommended.” ―Steve McIntosh, President of the Institute for Cultural Evolution and author of Integral Consciousness
“Few writers glow with such clarity and engagement that their words seem to sparkle on the page. This wonderful book captured me from the first sentence and it never let up! Bravo for a rare good read and a good story!” ―Allan Combs, PhD, Professor of Consciousness Studies at CIIS and author of Consciousness Explained Better
“The Adam Enigma is not just an absorbing mystery, it is a thoughtful and elegant journey into the intersections between place, spiritual healing, and modern consciousness." ―Keith Witt, PhD, psychotherapist and author of Integral Mindfulness
"Meyer and Reeder's tale is animated not just by fascinating characters, but by a sense of place that gives the story a vibrant geographical texture. The Adam Enigma is a wonderfully intriguing and thought-provoking book that inspires me to think a bit more about sacred places.” ―Alexander B. Murphy, PhD, Professor of Geography, University of Oregon; Past President, Association of American Geographers

This fascinating book is hard to put down and when you do, you still think about it! Not only is is about a hero's journey, it's full of global intrigue, religions, good and evil, healings, inspiring revelations, divine interventions, and wonderfully complex human relationships. Jonathan Ramsey is a Human Geographer by vocation and knows the "importance of place." He studies sacred sites until a Peruvian "trip" ended badly and twelve years later his journey begins anew when he's led to Adam Gwilit, a caretaker at a sacred site in New Mexico renown for physical, mental and spiritual healings and here this amazing story begins.
Along his journey, this Human Geographer is finding a new kind of sacred site, one with practical applications and the potential to change our urban killing grounds. Read The Adam Enigma: A Novel for pleasure but pay close attention to the chapters on Blue Island, IL and don't let this be forever fiction
My hats off to the the authors for this enchanting work.
It maps a spiritual journey — and a decision. Do we seek spiritual consciousness primarily through our intellect, or do we jettison mind and allow divine intuition to have its way? Or is there a delicate balance between the two? The result: a person of spiritual maturity. That decision plays out in the main character. "It came down to rationality versus intuition, he supposed." “Jonathan, you have both rationality and intuition. When they come together, you’ll know how to decide.” And from there it progresses to a place few have gone.
I had not heard the term "human geography" before, especially sacred places and their nexus to the spiritual realm. It deals with the divine energy associated with sacred places. Just such a place and its otherworldly caretaker catapult the main character into cosmic reality, like a high desert wind shredding a comfortable veil of impenetrable fog.
The dialogue is richly executed, which along with descriptions of the players and their surroundings draw a deliciously replete picture.
This is no cookie-cutter thriller, but a thought-out philosophy of reality embedded in a story whose end you are unlikely to fathom.
