Join us for a Book Signing with Nino Maiani, author of the newly published masterpiece, The Seven Secrets of Turning Your Dreams into Treasure! The Seven Secrets of Turning Your Dreams into Treasure is a journey one takes to recover an invaluable part one’s life. Old Griots, story tellers revealed those secrets around campfires, telling stories such as: the Princess and Frog and Iron John— where something is stolen, lost and/or hidden. Mythology tells us it is a Golden Ball and there is a longing to recover it, and that longing drives one to the quest, to bring it home. All great journey’s start out when something needs to be recognized or recovered. At midlife, is where this longing really is intensified. On the other hand, in our youth, this yearning is masked by illusions and hormones. This is because there is no one there to guide.
