Woman's Spirit-Quest Is Told with Humor, Understanding and Appreciation of Nature
Thursday, August 19, 2004  2:09:00 PM

by Niki Collins-Queen

"Earth, the Forgotten Temple" is an account of canoeing through unknown waters, crewing aboard a stranger''s sailboat, trekking through wilderness, sleeping alone beneath stars to awaken to stares from a friendly deer.

"In the wild I have flashes of self-forgetfulness-holy moments that seem to purify my soul."

Niki Collins~Queen's new book Earth, the Forgotten Temple—a spirit quest in the wilderness-is a pleasure to read. Current books relating a quest for self may be inflated with me-ness and a confusion of self-identification with a high power. Not so in this slender, softbound volume of a Southern woman's willingness to look to nature for meaning, for purpose in the big scheme of things and in the ordinary ventures of living.

Earth, the Forgotten Temple is an account of canoeing through unknown waters, crewing aboard a stranger's sailboat, trekking through wilderness, sleeping alone beneath stars to awaken to stares from a friendly deer. The church of the Great Outdoors delivers to the author an eagerness to embrace the natural world as she moves away from the usual comforts, conventions and confines in a personal quest for truth.

After attending workshops such as Silva Mind Control, Kubler-Ross's Living Dying and Transition and Anthony Robbins' the Firewalk: Turning Fear into Power, the author strikes out on an adventure seeking strength from nature and spiritual awakening.

Loaded with the emotional baggage of feelings of abandonment,resentment and rejection, she works through that burden traveling alone in the wilderness and on the seas to an appreciation and acceptance of the beauty of a simple life.

Collins-Queen's quest is clear of mind and full of heart. Her tale is told through a happy, funny and amazing series of personal incidents as she treks about the world finding the path to home and to peace.

This professional counselor of children finds peace, contentmentand love within the power and sacred spirit of nature. A Macon, Georgia native, Niki learns to savor satisfaction from being alive. Her moments of enlightenment about the larger questions of why one is here or what for, are realized in a natural manner. She writes of a spiritual redemption as if it were available to any thoughtful individual willing to let go of cultural demands of success and role-playing.
