Bonnie Bright as They Discuss Numenon on Depth Insights Radio
|Numenon, one of two fiction works in our 2012 line-up, is a novel with rich depth psychlogical undertones. It tells the story of the richest man in the world meeting a great Native American shaman. One reviewer called it “Bill Gates meets Don Juan.” While a fantasy/adventure on the surface, Numenon has a deeper current, that of human beings attempting to find and live their true selves. The people of Numenon are at personal crossroads. They can move to wholeness and health or dissolution. The next week will tell.
Numenon has won six national awards in the categories of religious fiction, visionary fiction, bicultural and new age fiction.
Numenon is a book that can be read on many levels. It’s an action/thriller. A reader can get caught up in the story and the interplay of characters and forces. But--it's also a philosophical adventure, starting with its name. The famous philosopher Immanuel Kant defined the noumenon (or numenon) in the 1700s. It means “the thing-in-itself,” pure being as opposed to the world perceived through the senses.
To get to the deepest heart, one must start where he or she is. That’s what Numenon does. Many of the characters are definite "befores"--they’re powerful, ruthless, unprincipled, and not very nice. We walk with them on a journey toward being the people they really are, and we do it in the company of one of the greatest shamans ever to walk the earth.
Numenon is a spiritual and psychological trip from here to there, from where we are to where want to be. To our dearest and truest selves....
The sequel is written and should be released in mid 2012.
