I returned to the village after a time away at university and, seeking out my old friend, I came instead upon a mystery: Adam’s cottage, his garden, and Adam himself were nowhere to be found. The author and minister Frederick Buechner wrote that “in one way or another, man comes upon mystery as a summons to pilgrimage.” And so it was for me. To find my friend, or at least solve the riddle of what had become of him, I embarked on a new journey of discovery. Filled with shamanistic insights and magical experiences, this spiritual memoir tells the true story of Ross Heaven’s search for Adam Dilwyn Vaughan. The enigmatic Adam, who introduced Heaven to the lost art of sin eating and other Celtic traditions, left him a gift—his journal. As Heaven travels on the dragon path, he explores the mysteries of the Holy Grail, encounters spirit healers, and experiences an incredible vision of the earth oracle. His fascinating journey ultimately leads to powerful revelations of his life purpose and the fate of humankind. This guide includes a sin eater’s workbook of simple Celtic divination, dreamwork, and intuitive practices. "The story is beautifully told, characters vividly described, and for anyone vaguely interested in the way that dimensions intertwine, this book is fascinating." —KINDRED SPIRIT
