This is the story of a remarkable relationship between two people who, in their different ways, have made significant contributions to the enhancement of the human spirit. From utterly different backgrounds, they sustained a partnership for nearly 20 years in which they were enabled to explore hidden gifts and to pursue unique pathways towards greater personal freedom and creativity.
This beautifully written memoir, however, is much more than the poignant history of a relationship. It is a courageous attempt to describe the journey of a soul in its commitment to plumbing new depths of truth in the search for the inner freedom for which at some level we all yearn. With searing honesty Sara Trevelyan has described a quest which has involved intense joy and excruciating pain in almost equal measure. As someone who at a significant moment entered into her story with explosive results, I approached this book with some trepidation. Such apprehension was not misplaced. Sara’s account demonstrates that when we tap into the divine energies within ourselves and each other, we are likely to be launched on a pilgrimage which takes us into places of agonising loneliness and also into the contrasting terrain of indescribable ecstasy. There are frequent temptations to abandon the journey altogether but fidelity to the quest can lead to the greatest joy that human beings can ever experience. To read this memoir is to be given glimpses of that joy and perhaps to find the courage to face the dangers and the pain which inevitably await the determined spiritual seeker.
