IN RELEASE OF CONSCIOUSNESS by JULIAN BOUND

A collection of selected writings from the books of documentary photographer and National Geographic contributor Julian Bound.

With chapters from five novels, including the bestselling spiritual story of 'The Geisha and the Monk' and the magical realism of 'Subway of Light' and 'Life's Heart Eternal', 'In Release of Consciousness' also features excerpts from books of travelogues, poetry, and meditations on mindfulness, all inspired by over a decade living in Asia and South East Asia. These chosen works are from the following books:

THE GEISHA AND THE MONK

HAIKU: A JOURNEY THROUGH THE DEEPEST EMOTIONS

SUBWAY OF LIGHT

A novel of magical realism. When Josh finds himself seated alone, memory gone, at the back of a deserted New York subway car, he is approached by a man who guides him on a journey of several subway stops. Each stop they make plays a part in Josh's gradual awakening, until it is up to him to decide what and where his final destination will be.

Seated together they read of her past lifetimes lived throughout the centuries. From lives including an artist's model of 16th century Renaissance Italy, and a Tibetan Buddhist monk living in the foothills of the Himalaya, each lifetime examines the evolution of a soul within the laws of karma.
