Interview with James Redfield

Until You Walk the Path, You Don’t Know Where it Goes will be hosting author and therapist James Redfield on April 29 at 5 pm eastern. Redfield will be talking about his new novel, Twelfth Insight.

James Redfield self-published his first novel in 1993, the immediate groundswell of enthusiasm from booksellers and readers made The Celestine Prophecy one of the most successful self-published books of all time.

Since 1994, when Warner Books published The Celestine Prophecy in hardcover, this adventure parable about a spiritual journey to Peru became one of modern publishing's greatest success stories. According to Publishing Trends, The Celestine Prophecy was the number one international bestseller of 1996, and spent over three years on The New York Times bestsellers list. In 1996, an eagerly awaited sequel, The Tenth Insight: Holding the Vision, which also became an instant bestseller, joined The Celestine Prophecy. The two books spent a combined seventy-four weeks on The New York Times list, making James Redfield the best-selling hardcover author in the world in 1996, as cited in BP Report (January 1997). The Celestine series of adventure parables continued in 1999 with the publication of The Secret of Shambhala: In Search of the Eleventh Insight (Warner Books).

Redfield's contributions to environmental and humanitarian causes is extensive, and has resulted in Humanitarian of the Year awards from Habitat for Humanity and the International New Thought Alliance, and in Wisdom Media Group's WorldView Award. He has joined Marianne Williamson and Neale Donald Walsch to promote nonviolent principles in the political system in an initiative called the Global Renaissance Alliance. And in 1997 Redfield was awarded the Medal of the Presidency of the Italian Senate at the XXIII Pio Manzu International Conference in Rimini, Italy. Pio Manzu is a nongovernmental arm of the United Nations headed up by Mikhail Gorbachev.

In the spring of 2004, principal photography began on an independent feature film based on The Celestine Prophecy. James Redfield partnered with Barnet Bain in cowriting the screenplay before they teamed up with coproducers Terry Collis and Beverly Camhe to take the international bestseller from page to screen. The movie is slated for a 2005 release.

Until You Walk the Path, You Won’t Know Where it Goes is an interactive internet radio show, which takes a broader look at the topic of spirituality. Instead of focusing on the religious aspects of life, it delves into how our spirits inspire us to be our best and highest selves. The goal is to give a venue to those who wish to share their inspiration, their wisdom and their courage. By sharing our experiences, we not only give encouragement others to reach for their dreams, but to also help
