Each of us is made up of various parts, and somehow we walk the world carrying all of them, integrating them in a way that makes us what we are. In Sandy Nathan's case, the busineness woman, horse rancher, shaman, and author all come together to make a remarkable story.

Though Sandy Nathan was born into a Silicon Valley corporate family, her life has taken a different turn. At the time, though, in her culture, a career in business was the only permissible path, resulting in Sandy earning a BA and MA in economics, and working as an economic analyst. However, Sandy realized she didn't fit the mold.
She transformed her life, earning an MA in Counseling. For the first time, she found myself studying topics she loved. Then, in 1995, a personal crisis turned Sandy into a writer.  While she had always written professionally and academically, she never considered it a career. Now she has four award-winning books, and feels she has found my true vocation. Her depth psychology book  "Numenon,"  featured book for the Depth Psychology Alliance Online Book Club for the month of January 2012, has won six national awards including the SILVER NAUTILUS AWARD, which recognizes distinguished books promoting spiritual growth, conscious living & positive social change. 
Listen as Sandy discusses the remarkable way a book was "delivered to her brain" in a flash, how Numenon brings together archetypal images of her own autobiographic experiences, and why the story of Numenon has something magical for everyone.
