My guide to all the weird permutations of waking and sleeping consciousness – the UK’s Independent called it “exhilarating,” The New York Times’s Sandra Blakeslee called it “audacious, enchanting, and often hilarious." My Mom called it "long."
A collection of academic essays edited by Alex Kohav that explores personal, theoretical, and historical dimensions of mystical experience. Alex contacted me about including my New York Times piece “The Anxiety of the Long-Distance Meditator” - all about striving to get to “initial enlightenment” via advanced meditation. It didn’t really work.
My first book. It took two months and they paid me six grand. Writing the wildlife guide was the highlight.
