In Drowning In The Light: Memories of the New Age, author I.J. Rosen takes the listener along on an exhilarating journey… a man in search of his soul and the structure of reality. Along the way, the author shares stories of his encounters with some of the most profound thinkers and renowned artists of our time.
With a perfect blend of dark humor and spiritual insight, the chapters fly by as we are transported from the late 1970’s downtown New York scene, to shamanic initiations in the mountains of Peru, to heartfelt yet satirical observations of New Age culture in 1980’s California.
Rosen brilliantly articulates the pain and vulnerability one can experience in the search for spiritual truth, as he faces his own death and sanity head-on. The author reveals how his greatest life-challenges transform him. With refreshing humility and candor, we are brought in, and invited to peek through the lens of Rosen’s hard-earned self-acceptance.
Drowning In The Light is as delightfully entertaining as it is uplifiting. Think Jack Kerouc’s On The Road meets Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist.
