From the Author
After writing my first book, Way of the Peaceful Warrior, ten years passed with no further writing. Then the influence of a new mentor (I will someday write about, in a forthcoming memoir), I was compelled, provoked, stimulated to share new insights and perspectives with my readers. So, what began as a small booklet I was going to call "awakening the three selves" transformed, as if on its own accord, into Sacred Journey of the Peaceful Warrior.
The odd thing about this story is that it is not a sequel -- that is, it doesn't pick up at the end of my first book. Rather, this story takes place within the time-frame of my first book, Way of the Peaceful Warrior, during a period of travel and exploration after Socrates sent me away to find myself and my place in the world. So literally, one can read my first book to about page 184, then read Sacred Journey, and then complete the first book to get a proper sense of chronology. I don't necessarily suggest that readers do this, but only want to place this story in its proper time and context.
As I write this note (in March of 2011), I am preparing to write the third book in the series, that does in fact follow, chronologically, from the end of Sacred Journey. More on that later...
In the meantime, I hope readers enjoy reading of my adventures with the woman I called Mama Chia, a Hawai'ian kahuna, a healer and sage, as I learn some fundamental secrets about who we are and where we're going.
From the Back Cover
Struggling with a personal failure and growing disillusion, Dan sets out on a quest to rediscover the sense of clarity, meaning, and purpose that he'd found with Socrates. When a long-forgotten memory drives him to seek a woman shaman in Hawaii, he sets out on an arduous journey, ending up in a rain forest on the island of Moloka'i...

Don't get me wrong - I think this book is 100% worth reading, especially if you enjoy Dan's other books, but I don't think this is the most interesting book that he's written. If you don't know much about the chakras, or you're looking to understand them on a different level, he touches on some very interesting aspects that I hadn't contemplated (even after studying yoga for over a decade).
I'm glad that I read this book and I really enjoyed the lessons, but I recommend reading WOTPW first.
I just had a thought: these books are the narrative version of Eckhart Tolle's "The Power of Now" (which he wrote after these books, by the way, and many of his anecdotes are actually taken from the first Peaceful Warrior book, which I was surprised to discover).
My only complaint, and my wife's as well (who is also a big fan now), is that Dan tries too hard to make the dialogue funny, which it isn't, so it's kind of off-putting. But despite that slight annoyance the information that he is transmitting is beautiful and coming through at the exact time in my life that I need it, so I am eternally grateful to him for writing these books.
If you've read "Way of the Peaceful Warrior" then read this one next.
I strongly recommend reading this AFTER the first book, and BEFORE reading "Journeys of Socrates"
All three were amazing. **READ THEM IN ORDER: "Way of the Peaceful Warrior" then "Sacred Journey of the Peaceful Warrior" then "Journeys of Socrates"
You won't regret it. I promise.
