Encinitas, CA, September 2012 -- When a wandering adventurer discovers an ancient amulet in the mountains of Baja California, his life begins to change dramatically. Ushered into a global, spiritual journey, he begins to weave together the threads of truth that connect people from all walks of life, all cultures, and all religious backgrounds.
For countless thousands of years, human beings have created vast divisions amongst themselves based on cultural identities and religious ideologies. In ECHOES FROM THE SUN, visionary writer and poet, Ari Marsh, fuses both ancient and current ideas and philosophies, presenting us with a modern, cohesive, universal spirituality that embraces all people, all faiths, and all of nature, making this one of the most important books of our time.
With the discovery of this ancient amulet and its supposed magical powers, this unsuspecting young man embarks upon a fascinating and dangerous journey which eventually leads him to Florence, Italy where he is wanted by the authorities, yet on the brink of a transcendent, metaphysical breakthrough that could very possibly bring all humanity together as one or plunge us deeper into worldwide chaos.
Ari Marsh is an educator and musician living in Encinitas, CA. He holds a Master of Education with an emphasis in Cross-Cultural Teaching. For more than a decade, Ari traveled the world immersing himself in the sacred places of Mexico, Peru, India, Japan, Israel, Spain, Italy, and Indonesia. ECHOES is his first novel and the culmination of more than a decade of anthropological, cultural, and spiritual research and exploration.

While on a spiritual sojourn in the mountains of Baja California, a brave young traveler discovers an ancient amulet believed to hold mysterious powers that can heal disease and prolong life.

From Ponce de Leon to the alchemists of Europe with their alleged Elixirs of Life, human beings have been captivated by the idea of somehow living forever. In ECHOES FROM THE SUN, Ari Marsh, writer, poet, and global explorer, blends archaeology and culture with the studies of world religion and history to bring us a story rich with an array of fascinating, international characters, chronicling a young man’s quest for truth and meaning.

Alive with colorful settings, ECHOES whisks us across the globe on a life-changing, spiritual journey into the esoteric mysteries of life that bind us together at our core and fuse us with the limitless energy of the cosmos.
