Georgina, a Jungian analyst, returns from her mother's funeral to discover her husband's affair. At the same time, her teenage daughter is suffering from suicidal depression. Georgina consults a shaman from Peru, an Irish mystic, an energy healer in Minnesota, five psychiatrists and four psychologists to help her child. Together mother and daughter learn the big lesson of life: nothing is done to you; it is done for you, so you can awaken.
Four stalwart friends accompany Georgina on this journey which carries her to the incandescent shore of her being, where she encounters her own heart.

Enchanting men delight us, seduce us, surprise us, lift us up on a wave of passion and romance and then drop us down to the bottom of the sea. Enchantment is marvelous, but we can't make the mistake of thinking it's love, or that it means a man is available for a committed relationship. Often the men that enchant us are more enchanted by themselves — or their work — which is a part of their identity.
When Every Breath Becomes a Prayer
“He’s enchanting, but he enchants only to disappoint. Unfortunately it took me ten years to figure that out.”
