Brace yourself for an intense and fascinating spiritual ride! Carrie Klees documents a week spent in the pitch black of a Dark Retreat, an ancient practice of Eastern traditions, with agonizing honesty, exceptional bravery and surprisingly wicked humor. With a quirky cast of characters, conspiracy theories galore, romantic drama and enough curse words to make a longshoreman blush, Klees examines the eternal matters of truth, fear, love, belief and freedom. Klees explores her own head and heart with a burning pain and deep insight. She exposes the limits and imperfections of her own human mind, in contrast to the infinite wisdom of God, with whom she desperately seeks an intimate relationship.
This is a raw and even rude book, which always returns to Perfection. While both an indictment and celebration of spiritual activities, this book offers a positive, life-affirming alternative to mainstream approaches to faith. Ultimately, her profound transformation will inspire and instruct.
