Abstract:

This book is Gibson's third volume in the chronicle of his life, following The Seesaw Log and Mass for the Dead. He had long been concerned about his son Tom, who found a measure of peace and happiness after taking the course in Transcendental Meditation with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in Spain. Unlike most fathers at the time, Mr. Gibson was nothing if not grateful, and went so far as to take his own course with the Maharishi. This book is the result of that exploration, and of his openness to the experience that made so much difference to his son.
