I’m not sure why I write these things, but a few people seem to be interested for some strange reason, so I do. In this one I’m moving beyond Europe. Damian Smythe asked me if I wanted to do a follow-up on my latest book, Seduced by Consciousness, and in the Cape Verde Islands. Not only had I never been to the Cape Verde islands, I didn’t even know where they were. I looked them up on a map. Off the coast of Africa. I’m going! Damian had originally asked me if I wanted to do a webinar course on the book, and we did and it seemed to go well. So now we’re delving deeper into the mysteries of consciousness, which is what the retreat is about.
The trip started off with the wonders of a travel agent. It seemed too complex for my limited mind to get from Charlottesville, Virginia to Sal Island, Cape Verde—it looked like an even worse itinerary from hell than my last European trip. It said it would take me three days to get there! I had to leave two days early just to be able to make it for some exploration and holiday before working. So I broke down and got myself a travel agent. I will never go on a long trip without one again. I highly recommend Jamal Shah at Flight Center. And it’s a good thing I used him. Not because they could get me there any sooner—it still will take me three days—but he arranged to get me there for less money, and he took excellent care of me before it and along the way.
