This is the second book in the Peaceful Warrior Saga. Neither a sequel nor prequel, this adventure takes place within the context of the original book, shedding new light on the path he was to travel, and would one day teach.
After a period of training with the man he calls Socrates, Dan Millman is sent away by his old mentor to apply what he has learned to everyday life.
Struggling with personal failure and growing disillusion, Dan sets out on a worldwide quest to rediscover the sense of clarity, meaning, and purpose he found with Socrates. Then, a long-forgotten memory drives Dan to seek a mysterious woman shaman in Hawaii. She is the gateway to all his hopes and fears - and the only one who can prepare him for what may follow.
Deep in a rain forest on the island of Molokai, Dan encounters mortal challenges, vivid characters, and startling revelations as he ascends the peaceful warrior's path toward the light that shines at the heart of creation. In this compelling tale, the author breathes new life into ancient wisdom and reminds us that all our journeys are sacred, and all our lives an adventure.

"Few people live and express the spirit of the peaceful warrior as eloquently as Dan Millman. His books are true teaching stories - entertaining and entrancing, wise and awakening." (Roger Walsh, M.D., Ph.D., professor of psychiatry, University of California, Irvine, and author of The Spirit of Shamanism)
An audible junkie, addicted to all things spiritual, meaningful, enlightening, masculine, additions to my own experiences and journey!
Yes, it is a great story on a variety of levels.
I was actually kind of pissed off when Dan essentially discredited this story and the one before in the prologue. Part of the enjoyment for me was the blurring of reality and fiction, to start out and say this is all a work of fiction and by the way so was my other book was very disheartening. I highly recommend that authors leave this determination up to the readers NOT start out by apologizing?
Sometimes authors are good writers but their vocal skills are lacking, Dan is good at both and I enjoyed his voice, inflection, tone, etc. In his first book, I felt that he brought the story to life but in this one I felt his disclaimer upfront hurt the authentic feeling from the onset.
Not really, I was hoping this would have been a stronger follow up to "The Way of the Peaceful Warrior" which was excellent, moving, authentic, and yes I did get lost in the book and even believing therein for extended periods.
Good book, well worth my time and purchase but just not as good as the first.
An extremely moving story, a great listen and I'm on my third already.
I feel this is almost as good as Way of the Peaceful Warrior, the latter being a closer to "true" story, but frankly, it feels just as real.
Like Way of the Peaceful Warrior, it's 100% uplifting and inspiring, with no dark corners.
Perfect for people interested in love.
