“Humans today are being asked to make a profound leap in consciousness.  We are the first generation in 200,000 years to know that the universe is not just a space filled with various objects but is in fact an ongoing creative process. No longer can we think of ourselves as separate individuals trapped in a tiny world. We are in fact a wave of creative energy that has been traveling for fourteen billion years. With her new book, What’s in the Way Is the Way, Mary O’Malley has created a process where each of us can enter into this deep truth of ourselves. By following her lead, by learning to dwell in our deep nature as a daily practice, we come to feel that joy of astonishment that accompanies every great awakening of love.”

It’s a book to take where ever you go.”
