Magic Carpet Flying traces psychologist Pamela Ryan's journey through her life's adventures, from the rapture of achievement to the personal anguish of loss.

Drawing on childhood lessons in rural Australia and later work in the Australian outback, Africa, Asia, and other parts of the world where she travelled to help others tackle the darkness of mental illness, suicide, and large-scale tragedy arising from terrorist attacks and natural disasters, Ryan reveals how she not only survived trauma but turned her journey into a "magic carpet ride."

Exploring what it is to "live truth," to "make ourselves up as we go along," to aim for the stars, and to become the "pilot in command" of our own destiny, Pamela Ryan's unforgettable journey in Magic Carpet Flying reveals what it means to be fully alive.
