Love And Above
A journey though shamanism, coma and joy

White Background

LOVE AND ABOVE

What happens when you are in a coma for a month? Where does the soul travel? How do you come back? And what are the other-worldly secrets you may carry?

International author Sarah Bullen and her filmmaker husband were a golden couple, with thriving careers and two young children. Then Llewellyn realised that what he'd thought were entranced moments were in fact symptoms of a brain tumour. He pursues a shamanic path of traditional African medicine to fight the cancer, and the couple are catapulted into a magical world of ritual and ceremony.

Alongside hospitals, surgery and treatments comes another wilder journey of spiritual searching. Then the impossible happens, Sarah too falls ill. While in a month long coma, Sarah travels through near-death and into other realms and worlds.

She comes back with an urgent message from beyond, and a spark to follow which becomes a roadmap to allow her to write a new life story.  From African rituals to a Greek island of tantra, sex and celebration, Love and Above is filled with wild rapture and infinite possibility.

Sarah Bullen is an author, storyteller and much loved international writing mentor with a unique brand of humour and heart. She runs writing mentorships, mystical storytelling retreats and women's rites of passages around the world. Her books include Hey Baby! The Hip New Mom's Guide That's All About You and Write your Book in 100 Days! Stop Mucking About  & Just Write. She is a former journalist and magazine editor

"I haven't been able to read a book for over six months. I have to tell you I can't put this book down. I've been up for 2 nights now reading it and will be up all night tonight. It is off the chart brilliant."

 A portrait by Roeloef van Wyk Jong Afrikaner project examines and reflects on modern Afrikaner. "Llewelyn Roderick’s blue-grey eyes stare straight at the viewer from his portrait. Van Wyk says he was photographed shortly after treatment for a brain tumour. Closer examination reveals the scar running down the side of his head and the cold sores on his lips, the result of chemotherapy. With a little background knowledge the photograph becomes a study of quiet dignity."
