InMoreHaving worked as a newspaper reporter, a manager of a food cooperative, a coordinator of a rural health service and a Vista volunteer, Janet Rose thought her next step was to build her practice as a psychotherapist in a large southeastern city. In the summer of 1986, however, almost overnight, her life took a radical turn. Following inner mystical guidance, she turned west, to the mountains of Colorado, to find God more deeply. In her quest for genuine wisdom, compassion and service, she left behind the vestiges of her previous life to pursue a path of renunciation and to apprentice herself to a spiritual teacher. How she made that choice, what that commitment entailed and how it changed every aspect of her life is what this book is about. Despite the long-standing tradition of the monastic life in many religions, and the relationship of master and disciple, the media today paint a negative, one-sided view of any situation that smacks of cult or guru. Rather than hiding from the controversy, Janet Rose encounters it head-on and presents a real-life view of work with a teacher and participation in a spiritual community. This clearly written and deeply personal book presents an alternative to the status quo of security, success and power.
