A remarkable tale of resilience and healing in the midst of tragedy.

What does it take to rise above your circumstances? To look at your pain in the face and declare that you will not let it drag you down? To believe that despite misfortune, your life has worth and purpose? In the memoir she has written, Heather Drummond explores these questions and unfolds her journey towards abundant joy and freedom from suffering

Heather’s life has been enriched with love, but it has also been challenged with sexual abuse, low self-esteem, drugs, alcohol, and suicide. In an earnest search for an escape from the deep sorrow that she faced, Heather felt drawn to the unconventional ideas of Garth, a man in whom she admired an unshakable inner peace and someone she fell deeply in love with. Soon, Heather found herself exploring the unfamiliar intricacies of Eastern theology while also trying to stay connected with her Christian roots

Her transformative journey culminated in a newfound self-awareness, gratitude, and healing. This gave Heather the courage to share her story with the world. Heather’s experiences will resonate with anyone who embarks on their own journey towards self-discovery, joy, and healing. What she has left as a legacy for her son River is, in fact, a loving gift to all.

About the Author

Heather Drummond was born in Africa in 1976. She grew up in Zimbabwe and went to the Dominican Convent in Harare.

She is a conventional Christian who has often been challenged by the fear and skepticism associated with Eastern practices such as yoga and meditation which she now enjoys and teaches.

Her enthusiasm for life and spiritual enlightenment drove her to write her book ‘Dear River’ sharing her spiritual journey and how it helped her hold on to life after she sadly lost two of her closest family members.

Her message of love and inter-faith harmony is spreading worldwide.
