Publisher's Summary

A spiritual odyssey that will open your heart.

Growing up in abject poverty, terrorized by a boarder who lived in the root cellar, Athena Demetrios repressed the memories, thrusting her into a downward spiral of melancholy and despair. Transcendence and healing would come through reliving the horrors of her past through hypnotic regression. A powerful spiritual experience opened doors into other dimensions, which began an odyssey where truth became stranger than fiction.

Her story of courage, mystical insight, and other-worldly guidance will open your heart and challenge your perception of the borders of our minds and the boundaries of our world. This is a tale of past-life visions, hypnotic regression, alien encounters, and spirit communication.

Traveling with her down the pathways and through the rabbit holes of a life lived in relentless pursuit of truth, no matter how strange it seems, will bring you, along with the author, into the radiant light of self-discovery, knowing, and being at peace with all that is.

Inspirational, a journey to the heart

Demetrios tells her story beautifully as she brings the reader/listener into her life from childhood through adulthood. We witness her difficult childhood and feel the depths of the challenges she faced as a child and young mother yet, she shares her story to inspire and uplift, never does she portray herself as the victim. Demetrios is authentic and willing to be vulnerable which makes her story that much more compelling. Thank you Athena for your courage in sharing your story and being an inspiration to others who have experienced abuse and or hardships in their life. This audio book is read by Demetrios and is superb quality!

A mesmorizing metaphysical whirlwind

I listened to Athena's true life story pretty much non- stop. It's raw, intense and genuine. She experienced in this life time, life times of learning deep soul lessons, and intense spiritual growth through very challenging life experiences. Through these experiences Athena learns of and heals this and many previous lifetimes of pain and trauma through past life regression therapy. She gains profound channeling and mediumship abilities through her experiences. It's a metaphysical auto biographical master piece. She is deeply open and honest and one seriously tough and tenacious lady who bares it all to the world. Athena has experienced and witnessed several paranormal, mystical, emotional, psychological and metaphysical events that she shares with us on a very deep level. Her voice is calm and mezmerizing. Her story is heart wrenching. Fall in love with this extremely down to earth woman who takes you on a real life spiritual journey of abuse, love, triumph, celestial and dark Beings, animal, spirit and nature communication, and the living of a life on earth being a Light Being in physical form.

The most amazing story of triumph of love

What did you love best about The Seasoning of a Soul?

Written with authenticity, rawness, humility and extreme courage, this book will move to tears anyone who has ever sought the deeper meaning of life. Although this is Athena's personal story, I saw myself standing in her shoes many times throughout the book and felt my wounds heal as I listened about Athena's own healing. This is by far one of the most transformative books I have ever read. Thank you, Athena, for sharing your beautiful soul in such a meaningful and courageous way.

Life changing- for seekers and those struggling

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I recommend this book for many reasons to many people - The author tells REAL stories that we can relate to regarding life's struggles. Whether you are a single parent, a person who has suffered the passing of a loved one, career strife, or a person with a challenging childhood and family story, Athena shares the solutions she found as well as personal anctedotes and a beautiful sense of humor. Her stories help us to smile as we confront our own demons. The book discusses spirituality, and even touches on levels of faith and curiosity that help the reader to consider how thin the veil between our world and other worlds, even other species -might be.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Athena tells her own story - even the really hard parts. The music and audio quality are incredibly good. The audio gives one the feeling of a wonderful feature film where the visuals are filled in by the listener.

Which scene was your favorite?

I enjoy the way Athena and the characters play out the hypnosis sessions. I also love the way Athena discusses her mother and the journey regarding the relationship.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This is a great book. I don't know if going through it in one sitting is a reality for most of us. There are 60 chapters and the listen is worth EVERY MINUTE -

Any additional comments?

This was a brave undertaking. This woman honestly shared the story of a childhood with parental alcoholism, of abuse, of struggle and common feelings of anger, resentment and fear. By sharing her story, Athena Demetrious gives the reader a sense that true healing and peace is possible in this lifetime.

The Courage to Explore and Inspire

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. This is an extraordinary autobiographical story narrated by the author herself. If anyone every found her voice, she found hers.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Seasoning of a Soul?

The author's story of her husband's violence and cruelty, and her response to it, is unforgettable.

Which character – as performed by Athena Demetrios – was your favorite?

Athena herself is the most compelling character. You couldn't make this stuff up. The development of compassion and a life of service, forged by fire and degradation, is graphically described.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me both laugh and cry. If life is a continuum between the limits of human endurance and triumph, she has expanded that continuum into a whole other dimension.

Any additional comments?

I have worked professionally with Athena for many years, but had no idea prior to reading her book in 2010, that the dimensions of her life stretched so far and so wide. Her story is a thrilling, life affirming adventure of an extraordinarily courageous spiritual pioneer. A beautifully articulated and absorbing story, with the author's honesty and conviction breathed into every word.
