One winter’s night the writer renounced his American dream of building a life in New York City to follow an enigmatic inner voice and embrace an unknown path, which goes on to occasion a life-changing journey in Peru, South America. He experiences the remarkable healing properties of shamanic ceremonies in the Amazon Jungle, the sublime energy of the ancient Inca Citadel of Machu Picchu and the Andes Mountains, the openness of Peruvian villagers and their commendable life-styles in harmony with nature, and friendship of many individuals who ‘coincidentally’ enter his life at the most appropriate moments to help him integrate the vital changes taking place in his being. Part autobiographical, part travelogue, part philosophical musing and part poetry, wrapped up in language both sensitive to the writer’s predicament and lyrically appreciative of the natural world, this book addresses the ethos of the world’s current dominant civilizations. It also affirms for many seekers in the world, that it is possible to discover their true path in life and create their own reality based on their version of the absolute truth, which ultimately rests in all of us.

About the Author
After completing high school, Kartikeya left India to attend Northeastern University in Boston, USA, where he concentrated on Management and Entrepreneurship. Soon after graduation he moved to Brooklyn in New York and worked for a start-up solar company as a door-to-door salesman and soon became a team leader.
It was one of the most successful community solarization programs in the U.S. Kartikeya fearlessly knocked doors in Brownsville, tagged by TIME magazine in 2012 as "Brooklyn's Most Dangerous Neighborhood". He educated hundreds of households about climate change and motivated them to take positive action for the environment by embracing renewable energy.
Kartikeya quickly became the company's highest earner and enjoyed all the delights of fast city-living - until an inner voice surfaced out of the darkness compelling him to renounce his long-held plans of building a life in America and go seek the truth of human existence.
His quest for the absolute truth led him onto an unknown path and inspired travels around the world to faraway lands, while he went beyond life's usual norms to unearth his calling in our magical world. In the process, he initiated an endless stream of rediscovering himself as a human being, while trying to serve his life's heart felt mission.
His first book, "Dream Beyond Shadows" captures tales about many insightful stories, based on the experiences he gained from a trailblazing expedition to Peru, South America.
