A Spiritual autobiography from the daughter of Hollywood director King Vidor. The intriguing story of her early life lived amongst the ‘royalty’ of Old Hollywood, and her later life and path in the extraordinary company of the American-born spiritual master, Adi Da Samraj.

By 1974, her children were grown and her tumultuous search had exhausted itself. Just as her inner crisis peaked, Toni met the American-born spiritual master, Adi Da Samraj. She spent the next thirty-five years as his devotee, on the wild ride of his dramatic, revelatory teaching work until his passing in 2008. With remarkable honesty and insight, Toni tells of her life as the devotee of an indescribably potent spiritual master. She recounts in vivid terms the miraculous phenomena in Adi Da's company, as well the ordeals of the beginning spiritual practitioner. Versed in the traditions of esotericism, she describes the inner workings of the relationship between the disciple and a true adept-realizer - the hard realities and personal trials as well as the ecstasies and profound revelations that come with a life dedicated to the genuine spiritual process.… (more)
