EXCERPT: “I could have written a book about my path of healing from the severe physical and sexual abuse I endured in childhood. I could have written a book about my professional life in intelligence and security and what it taught me about what goes on in the shadows of power (state and corporate). I could have written a book about my lifelong journey into mysticism, yoga, shamanism and the occult, and articulated the powerful realizations I have stumbled into along the way. I could have written a book about my life as a writer and a poet, offering a compelling narrative of the agonies and ecstasies of the artist’s life, and the grim, heroic struggle to keep the creative process alive and free in the depraved conditions of the modern age (industrial and post-industrial). But I have chosen instead to write one memoir woven out of all four of these narrative threads. Nothing less would deliver the truth. This is the book that demanded to be written.”

Part autobiographical novel, part world history, "I, the Dragon: Chronicles of An Epic Life Among the Humans" speaks to the existential crisis of our age and offers insights on the way forward for both the individual and the collective. "I, the Dragon" tells the story of a child who survives profound sexual and psychological abuse and how that child becomes a planet-circumambulating expert in the shadow realms of espionage, cyber crime and terror.  Drawing on the medicine of the Seven Beasts, the shadow of the Dark Goddess and the hidden treasures of the Mysterium itself, "I, the Dragon" tells the story of a life-long journey into the wilderness of healing and revelation.

"I, the Dragon" is a limited edition (333 copies), soft-cover, full-color book, with 405 pages, 115 images and 83 footnotes. Each copy is numbered and signed. I, the Dragon is available exclusively via http://www.GoFundMe.com/wordsofpower

The funds raised through the "I, the Dragon" Limited Edition campaign will be used to produce audio books of both "I, the Dragon" and "Wyrds of Power" and to promote upcoming events and workshops.

If you choose to participate using Option #2 (a $155 contribution) in addition to a signed and numbered copy of "I, the Dragon" you also received a signed copy of "Wyrds of Power: New Language for A New Reality." Taken together these two books mark the culmination of a nine-year run of creative endeavor. They are my two most important works. On its own, "Wyrds of Power" constitutes a significant contribution to the emerging global wisdom tradition of the 21st Century. Several overarching themes frame this dispatch from the Ancient Future: the Evolution of Yoga and the Yoga of Evolution, the Ascendancy of the Feminine in Psyche (Human and Divine), Gaian Poetics, i.e., our intimate, creative relationship with the vast planetary intelligence within which we live, move and have our being, Altruism and Sustainability as Spiritual (and Existential) Imperatives and Path of an Evolutionary, i.e., a call to the great shift to a green civilization required of us if our species is to survive.

This Limited Edition Offering provides five options:

 Option 1: "I, The Dragon" (Signed and Numbered) $133.00 USD (USPS Shipping Included)
 Option 2: "I, The Dragon" (Signed and Numbered) + "Wyrds of Power" (Signed)  $155.00 USD

"I, the Dragon: Chronicles of An Epic Life Among the Humans" is a saga in the truest sense. A child imprisoned in a hellhole of madness and sexual abuse escapes into a life of adventure, becoming in turn a libertine, a nihilist, a planet-circumambulating seer in the shadow realms of espionage, cyber crime and terror, and ultimately a poet-philosopher offering a 21st century expression of occult truths and primal reality.

Like all great sagas, "I, the Dragon" is also a history of our times. The six-decade arc of the narrative spans Gaia's descent into Anthropogenic Climate Disruption and the Sixth Great Extinction and also America's crisis of democracy from the political assassinations of the 1960s to the Trumpster Fire, the Zombie Cult and the Death Eater Lords.

If you have been meaning to participate in the "I, the Dragon" campaign and get a signed, numbered limited edition copy, this would be an excellent time to follow through. Here is one of several powerful testimonials -
"'I, the Dragon: Chronicles of an Epic Life Among Humans' is more than an incredible work of art. Richard Power delivers a personal nakedness never before shown, one that breathes healing into the deepest shadow of torture and survival. A most important work, masterfully written in three styles: porn cult-classic, polished blade of a global security expert and literary philosopher-poet. An undercurrent exists throughout this book, taking us beyond the desolation of his experience. Power never fails to find a way that leads us all into a new green oasis." -- Mary Power, http://www.mpowerdance.net/
