Keep This Quiet! IV More Initiations opens with the death of Willy Van Luyten, at almost thirty five years old: the author's housemate, boyfriend. That death is preceded by uncanny subtle warnings and followed by parapsychological phenomena. One result is that an audible bell comes to stay in the apartment for a couple of years - a bell heard by many people. It seems to accompany thoughts. This is just a hint as to the fascinating plunge into inexplicable experiences told with scrutiny and healthy doses of open-mindedness along with common sense. Not too long after the death, Harrell checks in with her support group, which includes Hunter Thompson, and winds up five months later at his home in Owl Farm. They have not seen each other physically for 21 years. Will she return to her Flemish base? Will the bell still be there. Yes. Initiations welcome her back, drawing her further on her path. They include subtle encounters with Hindu guru Dhyanyogi-ji, whose Kundalini Maha Yoga she is initiated into. But also tests with random number generators and two chapters on quantum mechanics as it relates to consciousness. Many traditions join hands, to make this experiential memoir “a book of wonder—Spirit, ghosts, hope, mysticism, mystery,” writes Alice Osborn, author of Heroes without Capes.
