Maharishi, TM, Mallory & Me The memoir of a once TM superstar.
Jon Michael Miller
"Maharishi, TM, Mallory & Me--The Memoir of a Once TM Superstar" records the personal history of Jon Michael Miller's experience in the Transcendental Meditation Movement developed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Miller rose to the upper ranks of the organization when it reached the height of its worldwide popularty in the seventies and eighties.
The memoir presents his early years as a formative backdrop to his later receptiveness to Eastern philosophy. His evolution in the Movement was greatly influenced by issues arising from his love of a beautiful, enigmatic woman to whom he gives the name Mallory Turner. Thus, the account is a love story as well as a document of spiritual growth and questioning.
The author writes with wit, irony and an impressive candor about not only his successes but also his failures. He answers the questions of why he got into the TM movement and of why he got out.
