An all-true accidental spiritual adventure that led one non-believer to lunch with Deepak Chopra, dance with Stephen Hawking, heal with Yogananda, banish evil spirits with Buddhist lamas, find true love in a Presbyterian church choir, share Celtic revelations on the isle of Iona, talk all night with the Daughters of Islam, and learn an abiding respect for all paths to God.
When Jessica Maxwell—nationally acclaimed adventure-travel writer and self-professed spiritual klutz—saw a vision of her father’s face filling the sky three days after his death, she had no idea that it foreshadowed a dizzying spiritual journey. Drawn kicking and screaming into the bright light of spiritual reality, she soon traded in her hip waders for halos as her world travels brought her face-to-face with enlightened teachers from all the great religions.Chronicling nearly two decades of Jessica Maxwell’s spiritual adventures and filled with astonishing stories, witty asides, and breathtaking revelations, Roll Around Heaven offers readers a perfect recipe for spiritual success in a chronically baffling world.
“Jessica Maxwell is the Empress Tizzie Izzie of adventure writing. She’s ornate, lavish, unpredictable, commanding, witty, daring, and illuminated by a certain afterglow of spiritual awareness.” —Tom Robbins, author of Wild Ducks Flying Backward and B Is for Beer
