Longing for Darkness became my companion as I traveled to see the Black Madonna in Einsiedeln, Switzerland. . . . It was a particular joy for me to read, not only because of the deeply moving journey described in its pages, but because of its passionate exploration of the Black Madonna. I love this book! (Sue Monk Kidd)
Der Verlag über das Buch
A deeply personal investigation took China Galland from New Mexico through Nepal, India, Switzerland, France, Yugoslavia, and Poland - places where gods like Tara, the female Buddha of the Tibetan tradition, and the Black Madonna are venerated today. In this fascinating account, Galland vividly describes her journey, which combined tireless research with intrigue, meditation, and sensual experience.
"Somewhere in this book you will feel like crying, out of love for something ineffable and hopeful that rises from its pages. Ostensibly a personal search for wisdom and peace, it is also an inquiry into the nature of authority. China Galland offers unexpected and welcome illuminations on both places" --Barry Lopez, author of "Arctic Dreams" and "Crow and Weasel"
"Longing for darkness is a wonderful, engrossing, personal, profound, and soulful book" -- Jean Shinola Bolen M.D., author of "Goddesses in Everywoman", and "The Gods in Everyman"
