~ CLOSED ~ "Dancing with Duality: Confessions of a Free Spirit" by Stella Vance, Review & Giveaway

Author Stella Vance has bravely laid out her private life for all to read.  This memoir will be of interest to all women (and many men) young and old, but, will touch many a familiar chord with those old enough to recall the new found freedoms of the (60's) 70's & 80's. 

Betrayed at the age of 21 by the first love of her life, Stella Vance embarks on a life of fearless adventure. She travels the world, adding notches to her lipstick case with lovers from all over the world, and surviving harrowing experiences, including abuse, addiction, abortion, date rape, and cult involvement. Along the way, Stella undergoes a spiritual transformation. Once awakened to the reality of nonduality, she gradually realizes that life is just a game, that death is just another dimension, and that nothing “out there” can really hurt her.
This inspiring page-turning memoir begins in the 1970s, with Stella as a Christian zealot. Subsequently questioning all religious dogma, Stella’s mystical quests leads her to delve deeply into the realms of dreams, psychic readings, astrology, tantric yoga, reincarnation and her own past lives, the entheogen ketamine, Indian holy men and women, revolving-door relationships, the seeker culture of southern California, and finally, the ultimate path of Advaita Vedanta. At the same time, she deals with anorexia and bulimia, addictions to cigarettes, marijuana, and alcohol, unwanted pregnancies, teaching in public schools, the death of several loved ones, foreclosure, and emigrating to South America.
The life of Stella Vance embodies all the adventure, drama, romance, humor, and philosophy of a free spirit set loose in the ’70s and finding its way into the new millennium. Reading "Dancing with Duality" provides evidence that life is meant to provide entertainment, as well as to teach us how to be grateful, forgive, and heal from all its vagaries.  
Stella Vance takes you on a wild ride through her life, complete with ups and downs and a plethora of sensitive issues.  Keep an open mind and in the authors words, "Be careful when you judge someone; you may end up doing a similar thing."  Dancing With Duality is one of the most revealing, honest and compelling memoirs I have ever read.  
I belong to a reading group and for a variety of reasons, this book is going to the very top of my suggestion list.

I really like her quote from that interview, "that life is but a dream, a mere play—so don’t take things so seriously. "
That is something I should always remember

I learned that she had taken lessons from each person who had ever "wronged" her. I am very adamant about keeping that outlook in my life as well.
