Running from an untenable home life, Charlene finds herself captive to two armed criminals for three days. Guided by an Angel and night dreams from her childhood, she manages to stay physically alive. 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 Tibetan leaders as Namgyal Rinpoche, aka Leslie George Dawson. 
Her Celtic visionary inheritance compels her to listen when she has a vision of Dawson. That vision takes her across the planet for 2 and a half years of travel. While her outer adventures include escaping tornadoes on the Gulf of Mexico, drinking chang with Mongol men in India's north, meditating 21 hours a day during a 3 month, silent meditation retreat, her inner landscapes resolve in horrifying nightmares, physical pain and near paralysis. Will her focus on healing guide her through the dark labyrinths of her past and yield a life worth living? How will she weave the paradoxes in what she calls "My Impossible Life"? Listen to this excerpt.
