This wonderfully well written account of a traumatic, dramatic journey is painful, gripping, and laden with life lessons.
From near death to a life affirming realization that only through the loss of his previously "heroic" experience of himself,
does he come to a place of vulnerablilty and openness towards himself and others. His perseverance through physical and
physic pain is strong and honest. The courage with which he shares these experiences is extremely moving. His struggle
to gain a special level of self awareness enhances the lives of all who touch him-and those of us who read his words.

Life is full of joy with some pain. Few escape the latter. Jack Weaver's near death experience is a lesson providing a process and tools to overcome injury and tragedy. This inspirational story speaks to all ages and is equally preparatory as it is when in great need. The writing communicates complex concepts in a page-turning style. Read, learn, grow into who you are meant to be.

Sacred Fall reveals the depth of Jack Weafer's courage, vision, fortitude, and willingness to be fully vulnerable to life in all its messiness. We are taken on an intimate tour straight to the heart of life's profound yet simple secret: Being present and listening deeply to what is, with no filters, provides the stage on which genuine healing and self-realization come into manifestation. Still, Jack's incredible being shines through. For example, how many of us have the instinct, the presence of mind and the physical facility to turn around in mid-air while careening headfirst into a ravine forty feet below, in order to land feet-first, instead of headfirst? Yet the truth is, we don't have to experience a literal fall of such magnitude to come face to face with the sacred within and around us. Jack's story, although on one level a remarkable account of a remarkably capable and humble man's astounding healing from a traumatic accident, is ultimately the story of all of us, as, like the Fool in the Tarot, we fall from Grace into Grace. Sacred Fall is not just a true story but a story of Truth, a pure expression of sacred knowledge revealed in the form of a powerful and deeply moving personal story.

I was riveted to Jack Weafer's incredible narration of his healing journey. This book is not just about physical healing. It is about how physical trauma can create an opportunity for the greatest healing of all--the journey to wholeness through the healing of the child within. Certainly Jack's experience as a psychotherapist informed his journey, but he credits his survival and healing to the grace and guidance of the Beloved, the presence that he encountered during the first moments after the accident that became a touchstone during the months of grueling recovery and to this day. For me, those moments when Jack touched in with the Beloved give me indescribable inspiration for my own life. Jack's courage in the face of excruciating physical and emotional pain as well the loss of his identity as "superman" gives me courage as I face the challenges of illness and aging. I hope you will find this book, as I have, a manual for living the conscious life, for healing childhood trauma, and for surrendering to the miracle of grace.

Jack Weafer's fall, near death experience, recovery, and final participation in a triathalon only 9 months later provide the narrative of this remarkable story. But the real marvel of the story is Jack's emotional journey through the physical suffering to the eventual integration of the horrific event into his emotional makeup. The fall and Jack's transformative experience during its immediate aftermath became the vehicle through which Jack redefined himself as a man, therapist, son, husband, and father. As Jack struggled with his broken body he also struggled with demons from a troubled childhood and his image of himself cast in the "heroic" mode. Forced to re-examine himself in light of his physical dependence on others Jack used his pain to spur his emotional growth rather than succumb to it and the depression and bitterness it could create. While the medical experts manipulated his body from the outside, Jack healed his entire life from within. This remarkable story can be read and enjoyed on a number of levels, it can simply be read as a narrative and on that level it supplies moments of heart-pounding excitement. But, on a deeper level the story can be enjoyed on a psychological and spiritual level as the reader takes this extraordinary journey with Jack through pain and eventual triumph. Sacred Fall is a "must read." Dr. Vincent E. Perrin

What starts as a story becomes a journey.... and Jack's journey became the readers. His message was universal yet his story personal. Jack's honesty and openness were brave and in his sharing he connected to me as the reader, as I am sure he did to many others. Worth reading on so many levels.

Sacred Fall is a powerful story of our ability to turn tragedy into uplifting personal growth and a deep discovery of the divinity within. Through his personal story, Jack illuminates how we can turn into and face our worst pain and fear. With clarity and depth, he chronicles the journey through his healing process after a terrible traumatic accident emerging on the other side of it with dignity and a deep connection to himself, others and the divine in ways that he could not have known before doing so. The book is a map illustrating deeper principles of healing that exist in us all. His journey is a testament to the courage in us all and points us to the power we all have to live a more deeply healed life and a fuller engagement with the richness of the moment whatever it may bring.
