BOOK: Love and Above: A Journey into Shamanism, Coma and Joy by Sarah Bullen (Tafelberg) is about how she and her husband were hit by disaster – and what happened after that. Sarah and Llewelyn were a golden couple with thriving careers, until he was felled by a brain tumour. Alongside the usual medical treatments, they pursued a "shamanic path" to healing – and then Sarah was struck down, spending nearly a month in a coma. How she returned, with an “urgent message”, and how the aftermath unfolded, is the substance of this scary, funny, moving real-life story. In this excerpt, Bullen describes the onset of Llewelyn’s illness.
