From the publisher

Hemispheres is a series of meditations on the tension between public and private voices. It is also a story of a cloistered life, where contemplation in a fixed community or in self-imposed isolation can go hand in hand with altered states of consciousness. Questions emerge. What does it mean to live and to understand one's own reality? Can anything be fully conveyed except by direct experience? And in the search for spiritual meaning and hidden truths, what dynamics are able to persuade us of what is real and what is not?

Treating the text as a living piece of work, the narrative is supplemented with brief notations and illuminations, a witness to events as they occurred later, or to others.
