Community Connections with Author Chris Lemig

Episode Summary

Community Connections with Author Chris Lemig. Chris Lemig knew he was gay at twelve years old. He just didn't want  to believe it. Spurred on by intolerance, ignorance and fear, he took his  first steps into the closet and so begin twenty-three years of drinking, drugs  and attempted suicides. It's only after he wakes up one morning, beaten  and still bleeding from a hate crime, that he finally finds the courage to  come out and make a change. Renewed and refreshed, he finds sanity and  healing in the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism and without looking back, sets  off on an inspired pilgrimage to India and Nepal. The Narrow Way is the  harrowing and sometimes beautiful story of a man who lost his mind only to  find it again in a strange new religion, in a strange new place, halfway  across the world. In the Narrow Way, Chris Lemig fearlessly slams his cinematic memoir  down on your altar. He may go to India, but this ain't Eat, Pray, Love. The  Narrow Way demands that you face the great secret: you cause your own  suffering. But there's hope. Don't wait for the movie. Read this book!  Clayton Gibson, Founder of MyOutSpirit.com
