Switching Teams What Coming Out Later in Life Taught Me About Love, Conquering Fear, and Accepting Change Dawn’s comfortable existence as a stay-at-home wife and mother of three disappeared as soon as she came out as a lesbian. Although it would be one of the most difficult experiences of her life, it would also be one of the most liberating—at long last the 39-year-old was comfortable in her own skin, even as she realized everyone around her was thrown into chaos. Life got even more interesting when she fell in love with her best friend of 10 years and discovered the feeling was mutual. It was difficult to imagine what her life would look like after such a dramatic change, and at times she felt the weight of the emotional fallout on her shoulders. But change is as inevitable as Dawn’s need to be true to herself. “My coming out was the first step in reclaiming my life as it was supposed to have been,” she writes. Switching Teams tells the story of Dawn’s newfound awakening and the reactions of friends and loved ones as they came to terms with her determination to live an authentic life, no matter what the cost. Throughout her fearless journey, Dawn experienced profound sadness and grief but also true peace and joy, thanks to the love of her life and unexpected support from those who mattered most.

No matter where you are in your own spiritual work, Where Two Worlds Touch can show you how to harness the power of an experience we all share and often fear: change. Whether you are facing the challenge of living in an increasingly complex world, or more personal upheavals of a relationship ending, a death, or an illness, you can learn to consciously use change as a spiritual rite of passage. As you begin to see changes in your life as precisely personal assignments for growth and not as random fate or bad karma, you will learn to embrace change willingly as part of your spiritual homework. Each new change will become an initiation, a passage that marks both a birth and a death, a giving up in order to gain. Illustrated with wonderful allegorical tales from all the major spiritual traditions, compelling life stories and transformative exercises, Where Two Worlds Touch introduces you to the Seven Principles of Conscious Change and shows you that the mundane details of everyday life offer rich fuel for personal evolution. Acclaimed spiritual teacher Gloria Karpinski opens up a new world wherepain offers as much opportunity for growth as pleasure, where inner awareness is brought into outer expression, and where body, mind, and spirit can at last become one.
