About the Book
Join the author as she travels back over 2000 years to visit with a miraculous woman in the holy land. Open the door and walk into a world where people are more connected to the land, to nature, and to God. Explore a time where people didn’t separate their religious beliefs from their daily lives. Awaken and explore the rituals and the richness in everyday life.
The story follows the life of Samara as she grows up in her Uncle Binyamin’s house on the road to Jerusalem after losing her mother when she was just an infant. Her cousin Joshua surreptitiously affords her the opportunity to obtain something few women of that time had; an education. Equipped with knowledge, a strong connection to God and a very inquisitive mind, Samara defies the odds and leads a most extraordinary life; especially for a woman.
In an age when women were subservient to men Samara disregards convention and becomes a strong, independent woman. But this is more than just the story of Samara. This is a modern day parable meant for all WOMEN (and the men who care about them). Even today women still struggle with the tension between their more traditional, child-raising, supportive roles and the modern, liberated, successful, leadership roles that are now permissible.
So, come along with Samara on a profoundly moving, deeply inspiring walk back in time. Partake of this divine mystery and allow yourself to be inducted into the deeper mysteries of who we really are. May the light that shines through Samara illuminate your own life and reveal your own true path. If something deep within you begins to stir honor it. If not just sit back and enjoy the story. Either way, it will take you somewhere you have never been before.
About the Author
Samara was raised in St. Louis MO. with four older brothers. Her father was a prominent doctor and she grew up in a traditional, conservative family. Her spiritual transformation began in the 1990’s after becoming a hypnotherapist. Since then she has been blessed to work with such enlightened masters as Brugh Joy M.D., Doreen Virtue, Stanislav Grof and John Perkins. In addition she has also been touched by and credits the teachings of Louise Hay, Wayne Dyer and Deepak Chopra among others.
In addition to acting as the vessel for the second book, which is now coming through, Samara continues to do readings for those who seek her out. She also continues to “practice the art” of opening to the divine in a number of ways. In addition to meditation, Samara is a devotee of hot yoga and believes it is an essential ingredient in helping clear her mind and body. Along with a healthy diet this helps her align herself with the higher vibrational energies so she can be a clear, open vessel for whatever wants to come through.
Samara is also an avid cook and enjoys preparing abundant feasts for family and friends. She is also something of a wine connoisseur. As Robert Mondavi once said; “Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It's warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It's culture. It's the essence of civilization and the art of living.”
Samara resides in Arizona with her family.
