In-depth Radio Interview

Here’s your chance to ask me anything you want about my new book ‘In Case of Spiritual Emergency’!

I’m being interviewed by Sandie Sedgbeer of Awakening Zone – live…on Tuesday 26 July at UK time, Noon PDT (USA West Coast). The interview is due to last a whole hour, followed by half an hour for your questions. That’s what I call in-depth!

‘In Case of Spiritual Emergency’ is a book of extremes; the terror and the bliss, the danger and the opportunity, as the psyche moves through its very own Hero’s Journey towards wholeness. I’ll be telling Sandie why spiritual emergency is so dangerous and what we can do to turn the experience into the wonderful opportunity for healing and growth that it can be.

All you have to do to listen in to the show is go to Awakening Zone, click on the episode ‘In Case of Spiritual Emergency’ in Today's Shows and click ‘listen’. It couldn’t be easier!

If you’d like to phone in with a question or comment, you’ll need to dial in on 001 714 364 4353. Awakening Zone is based in California but there are several low cost tariffs for phoning the USA from the UK; for example you can dial 0843 375 0011 (with Planet Talk) before entering the actual telephone number and pay only 0.5p a minute.

The number would like this:

0843 375 0011 - then listen to Planet Talk’s brief intro then dial - 001 714 364 4353

It’ll be lovely to speak with you on web radio. Don’t miss this unique chance!

If you pre-ordered your copy then you’re no doubt already reading it! I’m very impressed with the Speedy Gonzales efficiency of Findhorn Press’s distributor Deep Books. And I’m very much looking forward to hearing your first responses.
This is a momentous and poignant time for me. Almost a year ago my mother died and I was offered the contract by Findhorn Press, the two events happening simultaneously. An ending and a new beginning, a death and a re-birth, which is what spiritual emergence and emergency is all about. Letting go to make way for the new. I’m still astounded by the bizarre timing, though I trust it implicitly.
I find myself marvelling at the process of giving birth. Bringing the book into this world has been such a huge birthing process. Not only have I produced a book, with Findhorn Press the trusty midwife, I’ve also given birth to myself. As a writer.
Delivering the manuscript turned out to be just the beginning of the labour. The final push came with checking the proofs, in what must surely be Guiness-Book-of-Records-time. For every woman going through delivery there’s a whole team working flat out around her. Enter Findhorn Press, centre stage. Once the proofs were signed off, like many mothers who’ve just been through the horrors of labour, I thought, ‘never again!’. But of course that soon fades in the proud moment of holding the baby book (already I’m planning the next!). And now, like all proud parents, I want to give my newborn the best possible start in life. I hope you’ll join me in helping to make that possible. Spread the word! Thank you!
