Description


  "It is rare to see such a lucid and appreciative

summary of a life so well lived, and readers will

be inspired not only by the tales Horden tells,

but by his example of learning with an open mind

and heart." —Publishers Weekly (November)


“This warm-
hearted, inspiring memoir/teaching

by a modern Taoist I Ching master / Toltec shaman

conveys the ecstasy and intricacies of crossing the

unknown and exploring the other. . . . Horden’s

provocative story unfolds in non-sequential time

chapters with commentaries, allowing the reader

to register the moving account in one’s own con-

sciousness, much like the experience of consulting

the I Ching. A heartfelt sharing of ancient wisdom

and insight.”

    —Stan Madson, co-founder, Bodhi Tree Bookstore



In the Oneness of Time
is an inspiring true story that

draws the imagination into its own magical source—

where things become possible, and possibilities become

things. It grips the reader like a Carlos Castaneda Don

Juan tale—for real. Horden shows how he discovered

the divinatory mode of intuitive perception—and relates

in an engaging manner how a series of highly skilled

teachers, life events, and “in-between-world” experiences

trained him to develop it and use it wisely.

Advance/early Praise


“This intimate account of one man’s extraordinary

journey to become a diviner kept me turning the pages,

excited to see what new gem would be revealed of the

magic within and without. William’s open-hearted com-

munion brings us back to the invisible thread of mystery

that connects us all. Highly recommended.

“William Douglas Horden has crafted a beautiful

evocation of 'wild seeing.' His stories of initiation into

the non-visible realm convey the ancient wisdom of

the indigenous soul.

"Weaving through time and space, Horden invites us

into the 'world between worlds.' Here, among shamans

and master diviners, we encounter the sacred psyche—

and are reminded once again of the creative power of

the imagination and the profound connectedness of all

living things.”

   —Barbara Platek, MA, LMHC Jungian Psychotherapist

 

Full Publishers Weekly review

 

Diviner Horden (The Toltec I Ching) meanders

with intent through vignettes of essential moments

of learning from a cast of teachers. His graceful

storytelling demonstrates his perception that

"the entire world is filled with the song of souls

moving between lives." Though a few anecdotes

concern his formal instruction in the sudden

enlightenment school with Master Khigh Alx

Dhiegh, he learns from shamans and brujos,

cowboys, children, and even sea lions and parrots

as he travels from Ohio to Mexico and Australia.

These lessons take place in cliffs and ruins, a rain

forest and a monastery, a youth shelter and a

musician's parlor. The simple dialogue of the

encounters feels both mundane and mythic, and

Horden also gives his impressions of the "In-

Between" world of spirit. Horden's chapters are

emotionally complete even when the back story

is not fully explained; an extended set of endnotes

offers additional information about how he met the

people involved, their cultural backgrounds, and

occasional supplementary thoughts on the lessons.

It is rare to see such a lucid and appreciative

summary of a life so well lived, and readers will

be inspired not only by the tales Horden tells,

but by his example of learning with an open mind

and heart.  —Publishers Weekly (Nov.)
