I must admit that I was a bit skeptical at first about using a fantasy novel to convey Toltec teachings, but boy was I wrong. A dreamscape is the perfect vehicle for getting you out of your head and into the real spirit of the teachings, and Gini Gentry does it with such gusto that you are swept along into the dream along with all your own stuff, that keeps popping up as you read along.
The story is about Gigi, a gal who has hit the bottom of her emotional and financial reserves after a painful divorce from a rock star. She answers an ad for a manager of a small rural theater, and when she arrives she finds herself in the company of a whole class of “angels in training” who are put through a spiritual boot camp by the formidable Maya, mistress of illusion, ably assisted by God(frey).
As you romp through the human drama to acquire the twelve keystones of life wisdom, it is impossible not to reflect on them in the context of your own history and habits of thought. By embedding them in story, their meaning is brought home to you with more personal impact than just reading them in a spiritual text. The truth of ideas like, “you are the playwright of your own life,” or “your perceptions create your reality” seeps into your subconscious without effort. I believe this book can be a delightfully transformative experience for its readers. Warmly recommended.
