Truth Was Once Taboo

Truth Was Once Taboo

A Memoir of Self-Knowledge in the Age of Spiritual Sovereignty

ByManisha Jane

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Manisha Jane has always been the black sheep of her family, and never more so than on her wedding day. She wishes she could tell her loved ones the fantastic truth about how she met Patrick – the Frenchman – in Los Angeles only three months earlier, but that would be unthinkable. It would only ruffle their conventional feathers and lead to more misunderstandings. While some guests coo at the seeming fairy tale and others doubt that it's for real, Manisha has to adapt. Beyond their speculations, she knows that what she holds in her hands is Truth with a capital T, but unless and until her family and friends experience it for themselves, the story of her very short engagement can make no sense. Somewhere in the gap between East and West, science and religion, the old age and the new, Truth had become taboo. Embark on a transformative journey with Manisha Jane in a memoir that seamlessly blends ancient wisdom with modern spirituality. From Australia to India and beyond, she shares profound insights with grace, humour and vulnerability. We follow Manisha as she encounters a revolutionary meditation movement that unveils the hidden treasures of the subtle body and the common threads of the world's religions, and leads to her unconventional marriage. She takes readers on an enlightening voyage of self-awareness, empowerment and connection, weaving through her story many issues pertinent to the world today, including ecology, community, quantum mechanics, and the role of women in the modern West. Packed with vivid Sanskrit references and heartfelt storytelling, Truth Was Once Taboo is a must-read for anyone curious about the path to awakening and ready to embrace the inner Self.
