This story of inner transformation unfolds against the backdrop of outer journeys through ancient healing centers and oracles, at mythic volcanoes, on the trails of the Cathars and Knights Templar in southern France, and at the ruins of Etruscan and Druidic civilizations. Through many obstacles, hardships, and at times dangerous situations, the reader is transported into Svetlana’s experience of soul-seeking and pulled into the world of exciting travel adventure by a narrative that reads like a novel.

“Meet Me in the Underworld engaged me constantly—it’s so human and chatty and thoughtful and sympathetic. I really hope it finds its place in the world.”
“Joseph Campbell showed us the inner wonders of the heroic quest; now Svetlana Meritt gives us an enchanting personal account of the initiatory mysteries. This illuminating book is at once global and intimate in revealing lessons learned in a sweeping journey through sacred places and personal discoveries. Meet Me in the Underworld is a mythic adventure that will remain in the imagination for a lifetime.”
