Description

Stumbling Into Infinity

Is the intimate and sometimes startling account of Michael Fischman’s spiritual journey and the encounter that changed his life forever. His story opens on a flight to India as he reflects on the unusual chain of events that led him from a challenging childhood to his unexpected role as friend and helper to a renowned humanitarian and spiritual leader.

Winner of numerous boo awards, Michael Fischman’s fascinating and personal memoir takes us into the compassionate and mysterious world of an enlightened seer. It is a compelling narrative that blends remarkable experience with an inner struggle and search for meaning. “Michael fischman’s journey reveals how fears and negative emotions can be transformed into love, compassion, and higher consciousness when a student has an authentic relationship with a wise teacher.”

“Stumbling Into Infinity has deep knowledge, humor, and moments of grace. Ultimately, this book will inspire you to see how much better your life- and the world-can be through meditation, service to others and a deep sense of gratitude.”

“The impact of India’s spiritual teachings on Americans has been deep profound. Michael Fischman’s engaging memoir adds an important chapter to that history by personalizing it and shedding light on one of today’s most influential masters, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.”
