Dearest Paul & Phoebe, I wish to thank you wholeheartedly for your
beautiful supportive energy and stories you have shared with me
personally and through your book “Set By The Ancients”. Every
interaction with you has inspired me to follow my path and be proud of
who I am. I attended your book launch in August and obtained a copy of
your first book “Set By The Ancients” and started reading immediately
about your amazing purpose in life together. I was captivated from start
to finish and I now eagerly await to share in the next chapter of your
mystical journeys. The beautiful pictures you have included in your book
drew me further into this wonderful adventure and I enjoy revisiting
the stories by sometimes just looking at the pictures.
It has been an honour to share the sacred knowledge you have gathered,
of ancient cultures from around the world. Thankyou for your dedication
to living your dreams and following your heart.
Love & Blessings. Maria xx ;-)
Set by the Ancients:
A Mystical Journey of Trust, Love and Adventure
There are those among us who are called out of an ordinary life and heed the invitation; who hear inner messages and listen to the direction, even when the why or wherefore is unclear. Answering the call is a measure of faith. Such is the case with Paul and Phoebe Hoogendyk. This is their recounting of a spiritual path that has taken them on a global journey, to far-flung and unlikely places, but for specific purpose. Guided by unseen advisors, they were asked to undertake a pilgrimage across continents carrying the Greenstone of New Zealand, sacred to the Maoris, to make a connection with other Indigenous cultures and lands. To do so means to set aside convention and the well-meaning cautions of family or friends, a willingness to be called crazy and even be put in sometimes risky situations. In their book, they have given honest voice to their own evolution, the poignant mixture of beauty and pain that it takes to grow; and the rare joy of communion, sitting in sacred ceremony with Indigenous elders and fellow travelers along the way. Set by the Ancients is inspired through Phoebe's and Paul's belief in the absolute ability of individuals to affect global consciousness and invites us all to have the courage to jump in accordingly with complete immersion.
