The Ken Wilber Biography Series: Treya’s Story

Ken Wilber

Just ten days after their wedding, before they really had a chance to begin their life together, Treya was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. For the next five years, Treya and Ken did everything they possibly could to recover from this devastating illness, including a full arsenal of orthodox and alternative treatments, before Treya’s life came to an untimely end in 1989. This is their story. It’s a story of incredible suffering, of radical liberation, and of an ever-present love that transcends time and space itself—a love that reaches so far beyond life and death, both seem like very small things in comparison. It is one of the greatest love stories ever told, and once you’ve heard it, you will never be the same again. Includes 3.5 hours of discussion.
