In Search of The Heart, Book 2, The Journey Turns East

By David Bruneau

The following is a review of In Search of the Heart, Book 2, by Nowick Gray, author of Hunter’s Daughter, PsyBot , My Country, and Rendezvous at Jumbo Pass.

The title of this book is apt, as it conveys in the word Heart two meanings, and two narrative strands. One follows episodes of a spiritual quest to the universal heart of being; and the other concerns encounters with the opposite sex, with opportunities to face the personal heights and depths of human emotion through romantic love and relationships. The narrator guides us effortlessly through both terrains, with an engaging style that reflects a fine-tuned sensitivity of the younger David Bruneau. [Read more...]

In Search of The Heart

By David Bruneau

This is a story of one person’s struggle to understand this life, to grapple with the challenges of being thrust into this human existence, and to find some kind of meaning and significance in it all.

The author stepped onto his path of self-exploration at a young age and pursued his search with a passion that brought him into contact with spiritual luminaries such as J.Krishnamurti, UG Krishnamurti, Paul Reps, David Bohm, Robin Carlsen, Trungpa Rinpoche, Sri Chinmoy, and others. He relates his experiences with these teachers, with family, friends, and lovers as he explores life in its various dimensions during his first thirty years. It is an absorbing account of a sensitive young being’s sometimes painful process of learning to live as fully and deeply as he can.
