News Room


“Williams’ exquisite, vivid description of his travel experiences, both corporeal and spiritual, is understated, fresh, sometimes astonishing and often as lyrical as poetry. There is an engaging, exhilarating quality to Light, which works on numerous levels, whether we are considering resonant truths, or reveling in the details of a society vastly different from our own.”

“I was impressed by Dr. Williams’ profound spiritual, physical, emotional and mental preparation. His initiation process at Apu Ausangate was the result of years of dedication.  He had to integrate the Q’ero principles into his life before venturing up the mountain.   It is because of his dedication over many years to this process that we as readers have been given a gift.”

- Kirsten, Florida
