Embattled Saints: My Year with the Sufis of Afghanistan by Kenneth P. Lizzio  was recently reviewed by Chris Beal on the Bookslut Blog. The very favorable review read, “Given the importance of Islam in the modern world, most Westerners know far too little about it. It is rare to find personal experience and cultural history combined in one volume. Embattled Saints gives us insight into a sect that many Westerners may not have realized was still around, and in so doing also offers a larger view of Islam.”

New Mexico magazine published a wonderful review of Sojourns of the Soul: One Woman’s Journey around the World and into Her Truth by Dana Micucci.

The review reads:

Travel is a restorative, but it is also an opportunity to broaden our horizons and delve into our most authentic selves. As New Mexico resident Dana Micucci observes, “In a society shaken by uncertain times, the search for meaning has become increasingly urgent and necessary. Travel is one of the most powerful ways to deepen that search. It broadens our understanding of other cultures, beliefs, and wisdom traditions and teaches us ultimately about ourselves—what attracts and repels us, what we want, who we are.”

In Sojourns of the Soul, we travel with Micucci to Australia, Cambodia, Egypt, Tibet, the Yucatán, Peru, and New Mexico. But we also accompany her on a “souljourn,” taking in the spiritual lessons of each location. Micucci’s journey tracks with the seven spiritual centers of the body called chakras. Her trip to New Mexico chronicles a curative visit to Christ in the Desert Monastery. Though reluctant at first, she delves into the monastery’s life, from uplifting hikes to the ritual of prayer. Micucci’s journey will inspire your own—whether it takes you around the world, or just to New Mexico for a bit of our healing magic.

The Sewickley Herald recently published a wonderful interview with Sojourns of the Soul: One Woman’s Journey around the World and into Her Truth author Dana Micucci. In the interview, Dana discusses how traveling the world taught her many important lessons that ultimately led to a spiritual transformation:

“I really weave together many of the teachings that overlap and interwove,” Micucci said. “The one theme that unites all of these journeys is that of transformation, the transformation of the self at the deepest level, where I was challenged to strip away all previously limiting beliefs and perceptions so that I could step into my true essence and power.”
