Banyen's Description: 

Shortly after marrying Treya Killam, Ken Wilber (author of Spectrum of Consciousness and other influential books on transpersonal psychology) discovered she had breast cancer. Their honeymoon was spent in a hospital, an ominous portent of the couple’s five-year journey through hell and back, through tremendous courage and healing, and finally, Treya’s luminous dying.

This is a riveting story, combining Treya’s journals and Ken’s wide-ranging commentary to vividly transmit the inner experience of their ordeal. His commentary questions both “conventional” and “New Age” approaches to health and healing, and brilliantly introduces the reader to the “perennial philosophy” at the heart of the world’s great wisdom traditions. You can really feel the teachings in this book. It conveys as no other how the realities of medicine, cancer, spirit, psychology, family, and marriage can be lived—together. It also conveys much of help to anyone facing a life-threatening illness.

“Treya worked as hard at a cure as anyone I have met, but she never forgot her healing, the one she took birth for, the one she died into, the one she shared with so many.”—Stephen Levine.

“Those who have thrilled to Ken Wilber’s rare intellectual genius will find it even more intensely illuminated by the love, life, and death of the woman who brought his heart to flower...Grace and Grit is a true experience of sacred partnership.”
