A profoundly moving and riveting account of illness, spiritual awakening and transcendent love. Treya's own journal writings of her battle with cancer are seamlessly interwoven with Ken's commentary on both Treya's illness and the sweeping, luminous capacities of the human spirit. Wilber's writing is brilliant and Treya's candor and insight truly astounding. A triumph in all respects, Grace and Grit is a heartfelt, selfless gift to humanity.

I absolutely love this book shedding light into the transpersonal realm. Such a loving, wholesome depiction of a couple who share happiness, joy, triumph, along with challenging life struggles. I think that everyone should read this who wants to understand the meaning of life. It gave me a new, genuine perspective in my life.

The incredible story of Ken Wilber's first wife and her struggle with cancer. Ken Wilber is an innovative philosopher and long-time meditator, and he weaves many fascinating ideas into the narrative. The story is very sad, but an inspiring example of how meditation and other practices can help us remain "well" even when the body is dying. Also, a critical examination of the New Age trope that illness is "caused" by emotional or mental patterns. Recommended for anyone dealing with chronic disease.

This is the story of a couple who finds out about the wife's cancer within months of their wedding. The book is told from the husband's viewpoint with the addition of entries from the wife's journal from the time. It portrays the changes in their relationship and their spirituality as they explore different treatments for the cancer and ways of dealing with the many ways the illness impacts their lives. A remarkable book!
