While recovering in hospital from a collapsed lung, Kerryn Levy was unexpectedly visited by a nun who glowed from within. When the nun mysteriously disappeared, Kerryn needed to know who she was. Discovering the nun resembled an Italian saint from the eighteenth century, she found herself embarking on a life-changing odyssey of spiritual discovery.

Inspired by the nun’s appearance, Kerryn decided to convert to Catholicism, but the uncanny events continued. A biography on the nun inexplicably disappeared, then reappeared; she had visions, such as a Māori war canoe from another era gliding across the harbour; inquisitive birds came calling; and curious synchronicities repeatedly occurred.

Attempting to gain control of what was happening , Kerryn consulted widely. She developed her psychic sensitivity through Reiki training and by working with teachers who possessed a range of spiritually-related skills. She was also drawn to symbols as she sought to make sense of her numerous apparently inexplicable encounters.

Kerryn Levy’s spiritual memoir is engagingly honest, sparklingly funny in places and sobering in others, as she describes her struggles to remain open to new experiences in the midst of sometimes outrageously unbelievable situations. This is an entertaining and highly readable account that reflects the travails of being a spiritual seeker in New Zealand today.
