Autobiography about transcending bipolar disorder and finding a pathway to self discovery.

This book describes an 'accidental journey' resulting from having to contend with bipolar disorder for over forty years. The synchronicity that Carl Jung described became quite apparent at certain times. The illness became a motivating factor for conventional medicine, chiropractic and other forms of therapy and energy work. This is an autobiography that is, as noted in the forward, "recollected in tranquility (Wordsworth)".

Reviews and Endorsements:

... [in a book that is] largely autobiographical, C. G. Walker shares his discovery that the "oceanic" dimension of the mind can be experienced through medication, music and other experiences, including prayer and meditation. He combines the insights of classic psychotherapy with his post modern appreciation of various dimensions of contemporary life with a sensitivity borne of his own personal suffering.

The book is actually terrifying in places, but is written in a deliberately subdued style which safeguards the reader and perhaps even the writer, who has had "no major episodes" of bi-polar dysfunctionality for ten years or so. As Walker reveals his own struggle and details his mastery of the situation, the reader recognizes one's own disordered mind between the lines, and one's own need to find the ocean ... where one may be at peace ...
-- Brian Arthur Brown, Niagara Falls, Canada
