What the heck was she doing on this island?
Samantha Jameson finds herself washed up on Siren Island – well, if she was to be honest with herself, more like worn-out, defeated, and dead tired. Her whole life has been spent playing by the rules, and for what? An empty apartment, a career with no upward movement, and one failed relationship after another. When it all blows up in her face, what’s a girl to do but book a last-minute trip to the ridiculously named Laughing Mermaid Bed & Breakfast on an unknown speck of an island in the Caribbean?
Lucas Mosteron knows all about burning out from first-hand experience. Over the years, he’s discovered that he isn’t the only one, as everyone has their own unique story for landing on Siren Island – including his lovely and mysterious neighbors at The Laughing Mermaid Bed & Breakfast. Little does he know that there is more to their story than he could ever have imagined possible. When Samantha Jameson arrives as their guest – depleted and needing respite, Lucas can’t help but feel like he could be the man she needs. Irresistibly drawn to her uptight demeanor, Lucas is determined to unwind Samantha and show her that life on Siren Island could be the answer to all her problems.

Discover the Profound Secrets of the Ancient Zhang Zhung Art of True Magic.
From the very threshold of history to the present day, the remote realm of Tibet has been a fabled land of mystery and magic. Secluded from the rest of the world by its topography and isolated setting on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau—the highest in the world, with an average elevation of 16,000 feet—Tibet is home to the forgotten 4000 year-old kingdom of Zhang Zhung, the culture of the original B’on religion.
According to their own historical traditions, B’on was founded by the earliest known Buddha-like master, Shenrab Miwoche. Like Siddh?rtha Gautama, our most recent historical Buddha, Shenrab renounced his life as a prince to become a monk, achieved enlightenment, and composed a body of teachings that enable attainment of supreme knowledge and powers, known as the ‘Four Portals.’
A group of highly esoteric teachings setting forth the true nature of physical reality and techniques of powerful elemental magic, the ‘Four Portals’ are of extreme antiquity. The first extant traces of the teachings appear as part of the lore of the Zhang Zhung culture, but they are believed to have originated far earlier. Being an exceedingly restricted body of knowledge, said to convey enormous powers, the teachings disappear from the historical record for some 2600 years, not to reemerge until the 7th century AD in the arcane scriptures of the pre-Buddhist B’on religion in Nepal.
The secret teachings of the ‘Four Portals’ contain enormous amounts of elemental magic, in keeping with their view of the cosmos as a psycho-physical unity, able to be manipulated in heightened states of awareness through clandestine techniques and practices.
These highly esoteric teachings are founded on a profound premise: “The Universe is but a mirage which exists in the mind, springs from it, is controlled by it, and sinks into it.”
To understand this premise in a contemporary context, we may consider the following: “As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear-headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of the existence of consciousness. The mind is the matrix of all matter.” —Max Planck, originator of Quantum Mechanics, Nobel Laureate
“Consciousness cannot be accounted for in physical terms, for consciousness is absolutely fundamental. It cannot be accounted for in terms of anything else. Quantum physics reveals a basic oneness of the universe. Multiplicity is only apparent; in truth, there is only one mind.” —Erwin Schrödinger, Nobel Laureate
“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.” —Albert Einstein, Nobel Laureate
Transcribed directly from the archived field notes and journals of explorer M.G. Hawking’s five years in remote Himalayan regions of Nepal and Tibet, this book contains detailed narratives of Hawking’s experiences and conversations with a true sorceress, a powerful practitioner of the ancient arts of magic.
These narratives provide unprecedented first-hand accounts of her demonstrations of psychokinetic abilities and in-depth descriptions of her apprenticeship and the esoteric knowledge that allowed her to attain such extraordinary abilities.
