Love & 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.
