In her book The Jeweled Path: The Biography of the Diamond Approach to Inner Realization Karen Johnson transmits the living pulse of the teaching with a textured biographical account of the places, people and events that were the context of its arising. Her book talk further illuminated the process of how the telling of the story was time travel, bringing the narrative into the now with scintillating aliveness as she reveals more of the story with the same candor, authenticity and joy that jumps out from the pages of the book and into the heart of our consciousness.
