About the Book

Journey into the Great Mystery is the true story of Anita Runyan’s midlife foray into mystical realms as she transforms from skeptic to spiritual seeker. Her journey begins with the study of core teachings from mystics of all the great religions and continues with various encounters with sacred energies.

This fascinating book describes Runyan’s major kundalini opening and its ensuing effect on her life. Her inner search for truth led her to adventures with light bodies, shamans, spiritual guides, orbs, and more. She traveled around the world to sacred sites, including those in Egypt, Brazil, Africa, Chile, Easter Island, Hawaii, and the Aleutian Islands; and these outer explorations served to illuminate and deepen her knowledge of her complex inner world and inspired life-changing revelations.

About the Author

Anita Runyan’s early career included teaching in junior high school, social work, and probation work with juvenile and adult courts in Southern California. She spent two years in Nepal developing a pilot training project for the Ford Foundation and was then employed in the VISTA Training Program while completing her graduate degrees in counseling psychology at the University of Oregon. Upon receiving her PhD, she was awarded a faculty appointment in the Wallace School of Community Service and Public Affairs. Her appointment included writing grants and directing the resulting programs. One of these involved placing students in human service agencies for a year, and this became her major focus as she and other faculty taught accompanying seminars and other university courses. As a licensed psychologist, she developed a small private practice. Dr. Runyan is now retired from the university after twenty-five years on the faculty.
