In the long-awaited conclusion to the international bestselling Peaceful Warrior saga, Dan Millman takes readers on an epic spiritual quest across the world as he searches for the link between everyday life and transcendent possibility. Continuing a journey begun in Way of the Peaceful Warrior, Dan moves from Honolulu to the Mojave Desert, and from a bustling Asian city to a secluded forest, shadowed by a mysterious adversary, until he uncovers the mystery of the hidden school. While traversing continents, Dan unveils lessons hidden in plain sight - insights pointing the way to an inspired life in the eternal present. Along the way, you'll encounter remarkable characters and brushes with mortality as you explore the nature of reality, the self, death and finally a secret as ancient as the roots of this world. Join Dan as he discovers the hidden powers of paradox, humour and change. The Hidden School contains a book within a book, a quest within a quest, a bridge between worlds.
