Beyond the Shore
Kenneth M Krakaur (Author)
DescriptionWanted: Experienced cook to join delivery crew. Sailing in 30 days (Cape Town to the Caribbean). Contact John at Mac Delivery Service, Cape Town." And so begins a journey of discovery. Filled with rich detail about sailing, sailboats, and the people who make their lives crewing, "Beyond the Shore" is also about a spiritual journey: one that finds heart and meaning in the wisdom traditions of Judaism and Buddhism. Beginning in South Africa with a help wanted ad and a chance encounter with a modern mystic, twenty-one year old Jade sets out to discover herself and her place in a world from which she feels oddly disconnected. Her physical journey takes her from Cape Town to Brazil to the Caribbean to the Chesapeake Bay, but her real journey is an internal quest for a way of being in relationship to the world. Anchored by the thirteen principles of the Bujew and guided by a tiny packet of sand from a Tibetan Buddhist mandala, Jade finds her own heart "Beyond the Shore."
