DreamVentureA Spiritual Quest
By: Maria L. Ray with Aric C. Ray
"DreamVenture is a marvelous literary work..." - Evelyn Lincoln, author of My Twelve Years with JFK and Kennedy and Johnson
"DreamVenture is the poetry of love of family..." - Dr. Mary Cathryne Park, Ph.D. late professor of English
This story is based on the real dream experience of Maria Ray which took place in June of 1990. From where did it come and where will it end? DreamVenture offers a creative work of fiction derived from the repercusions of a dream. It interweaves elements of metaphysics, philosophy, and intrigue into a vivid combination of plot and characterization. The author, with the help of her son, utilizes a stream of conscious narrative format which offers a distinctive tableau of spiritual settings and motifs.
As Isa and Ivan, together with their children, experience an evocative "dreamventure," they explore many realms of consciousness and investigate such existential themes as the nature of the soul, the power of the Divine as opposed to the concept of free will, and the unending bonds between loved ones.
