When Maya Burke finds an old journal written by her father — a man who vanished mysteriously when she was an infant — she is shocked by its first words. Dear Maya… As she reads through the weathered pages, she realizes that he’s laid out a spiritual quest designed specifically for her.
She begins to practice its teachings and quickly her life changes. Soon she is catapulted onto a cross-country journey of discovery, and is swept up into a hidden world of psychic visions, energy vortexes, secret government programs, and a spiritual underground that has revived an ancient meditation practice that may literally change the world. Waking Maya is a thrilling, wisdom-packed quest to understand the deepest principles of our reality.
