My Impossible Life 

by Charlene Jones 

Running from an untenable home life, Charlene finds herself captive to two armed robbers for three days. She returns to her home but shows up addicted and wasted until she meets and travels with the contentious, contemptuous meditation teacher recognized by the Tibetans, Leslie George Dawson. While her outer adventures include sailing the Gulf of Mexico, drinking chang with Mongol men in India’s north, meditating 21 hours a day in a three-month silent meditation retreat, her inner landscapes include horrifying memories, physical pain and near paralysis. Will her focus on healing guide her through the dark labyrinths of her past yielding a life worth living? How will she weave the paradoxes in what she calls “My Impossible Life”?
