The Sailfish and the Sacred Mountain
By

Rating
Part spiritual travelogue, part personal memoir, The Sailfish And The Sacred Mountain is the story of the profound moments that forever change our lives, told in the context of a father and son's journey to the sacred Mount Kailas in Tibet. Every moment in life is a moment of passage. While many culturally prescribed rites of passage - baptisms, bar mitzvahs and confirmations - may not correspond with our own experience of a higher level of maturity and understanding, there are many other moments that stand out as passages into a new phase of life. These are the moments of triumph or of pain and defeat - the first taste of love, the birth of a child, the death of a loved one - moments after which we know, in the quiet of our hearts and minds, we will never be the same. The Sailfish And The Sacred Mountain presents a unique view into how we can create the circumstances that invite profound spiritual awakenings to occur in our lives and how we can recognize and embrace the powerful lessons these events have to offer.
