About the Book

How do we find physical help for our spiritual quest? Could the structure of ancient kivas in the American Southwest offer a template for the human interface of that path? And what might nature, embedded in the kiva itself, reveal to us about our own belonging, no matter where or how we live? These are questions author and transpersonal therapist Robyn Bridges has explored for over thirty years, winding through the Rocky Mountains from Montana to Arizona while discovering the healing power of nature. From her own blessed and challenging life experiences, resulting in years of unplanned solitude, she has quested and found meaning, solace, and support from the divine, the human community, and the natural world. This Way to the Kiva chronicles that journey and its attendant discoveries.
