The Golden Echo

The LIFE and ART of Rowena Pattee Kryder 1935 to 2007

By Rowena Pattee Kryder, Ph.D

"Even when we are lost and confused, in misery, imprisoned and in deep suffering, there is Love-Light within us. There is no separation or abandonment. Even in despair, there is a Reality that can burst through the bounds of self-inflicted fears." So writes author, artist, visionary sand shaman Rowena Pattee Kryder in her brilliant new book, The Golden Echo . She goes on to say, "Such a state of consciousness is a self-inflicted illusion, and one that causes great suffering. It is unnecessary and untrue."

This masterful memoir and autobiography is a journey in the evolution of her mind over seven decades, an evolution of discovery. And in its 348 pages, a manual to find well-being for us. Dr. Kryder writes, "The Golden Echo is what we find in ourselves when we transform, transmute and transcend anxiety and fear."

The Golden Echo is divided into two major parts. Part One chronicles the four phases of Dr. Kryder's life: Innocence, Experience, Empowerment and Wisdom. Included in this autobiographical study are samples of her multi-media art that reflects her growth. Part Two treats the reader to even more spectacular visual art created during her growth and discovery of a new culture called The Golden Age.

We read, "How can I presume that I have wisdom now? Because innocence has wisdom within it, and I have gone through both suffering and joy, and learned how death and rebirth is not only a cycle, but is a spiral that is one with Prime how the grace of God takes over when one dies to conditioning, manipulation, expectations and attachments."

The Golden Echo is the voice of an eternal truth that is loving and kind. It is Rowena Pattee Kryder's (in this reviewer's opinion) finest work yet and she has written a dozen books and numerous videos and audios. Indeed, see my review of Robes of Light elsewhere in my column. If you've been looking for a cogent and meaningful vision of what can be, look no further. This reviewer highly recommends The Golden Echo !
