ROADMAP TO A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE Step into the world of New Avalon, a self-sustaining eco-community in the mountains of Northern California, and a wellspring of viable solutions to the rising crises in economics, government and the culture. This spiritually grounded initiative is further sparked by the reunion of founding member Leah Erickson, host of New Avalon’s own television program, Light on the Crisis, and Chris Kramer, the earthly head of the ‘Order of the Ruby’, the highest magicians on the planet. After a 10-year hiatus whilst completing his mission for the ‘Ruby Order’, Chris is now in residence at New Avalon, in full support of Leah and the community. Their reunion — one of cosmic love, humor and everyday magic — catapults Leah into the final preparatory, always challenging, steps to mission and spirit-filled consciousness soul (attainment of higher self). The first book in a series, The Priestess and Magus, The Gift, speaks to the power of grassroots activism, the importance of truth-speaking no matter how controversial, and the longing coming from the depths of our souls to gift from the heart, guiding conscious creativity into manifestation. With laughter and tears of recognition, Leah, Chris, along with the entire New Avalon community, provide us with mirrors of self, a good many options to enliven relationship, and, most importantly, the path of the ego’s ascent from cultural bondage to liberation in service. A long-awaited follow-up to Ayani’s Lineage of the Codes of Light and The Brotherhood of the Magi, this book, and those forthcoming in the series, gift us a love story on many levels - from the cosmic love of Chris and Leah to the outreaching hands of a heart-centered, consensus community growing into selfless service — to human evolution and Mother Earth.
