About the Book


Lavishly illustrated with 33 color cloud photographs, this coffeetable-sized book introduces the Love in Transition series, published originally in Romania, to the United States. Midwest Book Review calls it “an enthusiastically recommended reading experience,” Kirkus Discoveries identifies “the premise that all human beings, through our individual life experiences, have the potential to make an impact on the collective consciousness of humanity.” It recommends the “nuggets of brilliant insight into life, death and the collective human consciousness”; and the Mindquest Review publisher notes that “Margaret Harrell has produced one of the most perceptive works available for our time.”

Some of the photography is on view at the Gallery Gora,Montreal in the summer 2010.

“A thoughtful and thought-provoking text illustrating a powerful and extended journey into a higher consciousness ... a seminal work of wit, wisdom, and imagination.”

Midwest Book Review, “Reviewer’s Choice,” Small Press Bookwatch June

“A book to be read and savored and reflected upon time and time again.” MBR, July

“This is Margaret A. Harrell’s gift, . . . the images and the writing that goes with them. . . . [She is] an energy manifester and she’s bringing it through these energies. . . . This is not only an art book, it’s not only an intellectual book, it’s about raising consciousness. . . . [The images are] something uniquely different . . . aren’t in the Earth archetypes.”

About the Author

Margaret A. Harrell is the author of the four Keep This Quiet! memoirs as well as eight "consciousness-research" books. Nothing was ever ordinary about Harrell's life. This book reveals much of its amazing wealth and depth—from the New York City Greenwich Village days, to marriage to a Belgian poet, to the spiritual initiations that began in the 80s. For the last two and a half decades she has studied—since 2001 taught—transformative courses, notably the "light body." Her academic background includes Duke University, Columbia University and the C. G. Jung Institute in Zurich.

In Gonzo Letters II she is acknowledged for her role as copy editor/Assistant Editor at Random House of Hunter S. Thompson’s first book. There, he searches for someone who will "'prod me unmercifully, in the same way a copy editor named Margaret Harrell kept me locked to the daily grindstone on the Hell's Angel’s book.' . . . Thompson looked to his Hell's Angels copy editor for help dealing with 'the down side of success.'" Her memoir Keep This Quiet! My Relationship with Hunter S. Thompson, Milton Klonsky, and Jan Mensaert reveals an unknown chapter in the life of Hunter - quoting extensively from his letters to her.
