A compelling journey of love and union …
… that draws us into the inner reaches of psychic power and the potential in all of us. Gripping in its account of a man caught between worlds, with survival at stake both mentally and physically, the book propels us into the deep and swirling maelstroms of transformation as one becomes two and the mystical reveals itself.
This well-crafted story comes from the heart – or should we say hearts? – and grabs us, not letting go.
The pace quickens, and we cannot put the book down. Shakti appears, the female energy of the universe, almost from the outset, but then hides itself, appearing at key moments.
Honest and vulnerable, visiting the spaces of the imposter syndrome we are all familiar with, the book is a revelation of bhakti and tantra in equal parts. With its exquisite epiphanies, “Grabbing Lightning” is a gift of redemption and transcendence.
