A deep hermetic exploration of the intelligence of the heart, a way of understanding as nature could in its harmonious relationships: "Nature had shown me a great mountain, crowned with a peak of immaculate whiteness, but She was unable to teach me the way leading to it.

It is clear that Schwaller has experienced everything he has discussed.

The book really forces you to think differently than you are accustomed to. This is a great spiritual book that you would be wise to revisit numerous times
