Overview


Four years after training with the old warrior he calls Socrates — in spite of all he has learned — Dan Millman confronts personal failure and growing frustrations. Disillusioned with his life, unable to bridge the gap between knowing and doing, Dan sets out on a worldwide quest to rediscover his sense of purpose and source of inspiration.

A buried memory sends Dan on a search for a woman shaman, deep in a Hawaiian rain forest. She is the gateway to all his hopes and his fears — and only she can prepare him for what is to come.

In worlds of shadow and light, Dan encounters inner tests, mortal challenges, shocking revelations, and unforgettable characters as he ascends the warrior’s path to wisdom and peace. This is the sacred journey we all share, the journey to the Light that shines at the heart of all our lives.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is the story of a sacred journey begun when Socrates, an old gas station attendant/philosopher, leaves author Millman restless with the idea of conformity. Millman's journey is interrupted for eight years (``the lost years,'' he calls them), when he leaves the path of the sacred warrior for university politics, family responsibilities, and professional aspirations. Then, a faculty travel grant motivates him to forsake his miserable life of conformity and resume the sacred journey begun so long ago. He finds a nameless woman in Hawaii, spoken of by Socrates, and she agrees to serve as his shaman. Millman meets other unforgettable characters while facing shocking revelations and mortal challenges as he ascends the warrior's mountain to wisdom and peace. Recommended for libraries with large philosophy or religion collections.-- Ravonne Green, Emmanuel Coll Lib., Franklin Springs, Ga.

Trusting the process is not always easy and Millman takes a chance. That risk taking is precious and teaches us to get out of comfortable patterns. The journey takes one through the extraordinary time after time, it's exciting. Millman had to lose his life in order to get his life. I loved every minute of my reading.

I first read this book several years ago and it became an instant favorite. A wonderful story with spiritual teaching. There are few stories about spiritual subjects and for some, non fiction can be a bit hard going. This book ( which is sort of non fiction in fiction )gets the messages of trust, service, sychronicity, guidance, love, life's meaning and the teachings of the three selves over in a story that is memorable, light and descriptive. A really lovely book.
