This is book that promises not just a glimpse into the re-emergence of Daoism in China today but some deep insights into the struggle between earthly desires and heavenly knowledge. The Valley Spirit is unique... This book gives an intimate account of a journey towards enlightenment that is inevitable tainted by sexuality, age and upbringing. -- Ancient to Future blog
Ms. Wei's ability to bring her readers on a spiritual journey that is at once confusing, challenging, and beautiful makes "The Valley Spirit" an enlightening read for all who seek their own life path. -- Deerfield Magazine (Deerfield Academy, MA)
A timeless tale of internal martial arts, wild medicine, healing and Daoist wisdom - the most interesting and thought-provoking book I have read for some years. -- Alex Kozma, author of Esoteric Warriors and Warrior Guards the Mountain

A unique personal account, this book follows Lindsey's journey... A true story, this book describes the living experience of a profoundly sincere, bitter and ultimately liberating female quests.
