Based in part on the author's own spiritual journey, Being Free: On the Inside is a magical realism novel of hope and redemption. Telling his story is Corey Astin, a young lawyer of privilege who will spend the next six years incarcerated. As he begins to pay for what he has done, he must face the stark reality of life behind bars in the old Maine State Prison. The nature of his crime makes him an instant target for other inmates. County jail offered only a tiny preview of the harsh environment in the maximum-security state prison. Corey arrives in shackles in the middle of the cold Maine winter, to a poorly-heated cell block, knowing only one person, Carl, from his time in county. Corey soon meets Dalton, a man who will become his mentor and teacher of a special way of seeing and using energy called The Choice. Being chosen is a great honor, but Corey doesn't know it yet. He is just beginning to understand what kind of magical world exists within for those who can manifest it. Told in the first-person, Corey explains his experience in the prison, and his growing friendship with Dalton. The story unfolds as if you are with him, listening to his concerns, and baring his soul. This first book in a series is a private and perilous trip into a world that few have experienced.
