It has been nearly three decades since Shirley MacLaine commenced her brave and public commitment to chronicling her personal quest for spiritual understanding. In testament to the endurance and vitality of her message, each of her eight legendary bestsellers -- from Don't Fall Off the Mountain to My Lucky Stars -- continues today to attract, dazzle, and transform countless new readers. Now Shirley is back -- with her most breathtakingly powerful and unique book yet.
This is the story of a journey. It is the eagerly anticipated and altogether startling culmination of Shirley MacLaine's extraordinary -- and ultimately rewarding -- road through life. The riveting odyssey began with a pair of anonymous handwritten letters imploring Shirley to make a difficult pilgrimage along the Santiago de Compostela Camino in Spain. Throughout history, countless illustrious pilgrims from all over Europe have taken up the trail. It is an ancient -- and allegedly enchanted -- pilgrimage. People from St. Francis of Assisi and Charlemagne to Ferdinand and Isabella to Dante and Chaucer have taken the journey, which comprises a nearly 500-mile trek across highways, mountains and valleys, cities and towns, and fields. Now it would be Shirley's turn.
For Shirley, the Camino was both an intense spiritual and physical challenge. A woman in her sixth decade completing such a grueling trip on foot in thirty days at twenty miles per day was nothing short of remarkable. But even more astounding was the route she took spiritually: back thousands of years, through past lives to the very origin of the universe. Immensely gifted with intelligence, curiosity, warmth, and a profound openness to people and places outside her own experience, Shirley MacLaine is truly an American treasure. And once again, she brings her inimitable qualities of mind and heart to her writing. Balancing and negotiating the revelations inspired by the mysterious energy of the Camino, she endured her exhausting journey to Compostela until it gradually gave way to a far more universal voyage: that of the soul. Through a range of astonishing and liberating visions and revelations, Shirley saw into the meaning of the cosmos, including the secrets of the ancient civilizations of Atlantis and Lemuria, insights into human genesis, the essence of gender and sexuality, and the true path to higher love.
With rich insight, humility, and her trademark grace, Shirley MacLaine gently leads us on a sacred adventure toward an inexpressibly transcendent climax. The Camino promises readers the journey of a thousand lifetimes.

A funny, fierce, imaginative memoir chronicling New York Times bestselling author and Academy Award winner Shirley MacLaine’s remarkable experiences filming Wild Oats in the Canary Islands and the extraordinary memories her time there brought forth of a past life on the lost continent of Atlantis.

Her agent advised her not to get on the plane. The male leads weren’t even cast. The financing was shaky at best. The script had been rewritten countless times. And yet something about Wild Oats lured Shirley MacLaine to the film’s location shoot in the far-off Canary Islands—and straight to the center of one of the most thrilling and paradigm-shifting adventures of her life.

The making of the film reads like a screwball comedy, as the cast and crew face unpredictable daily obstacles with ingenuity, grit, and personal sacrifice. Yet the chaos leads Shirley to a revelatory new understanding of the demise of one of history’s most elusive yet endlessly intriguing places. Scholars have long theorized that Spain’s Canary Islands are the remnants of the mighty lost continent of Atlantis. As the movie set descends into pandemonium, Shirley finds fascinating corollaries between the island’s cataclysmic fate and our own dangerous trajectory. Can we learn the lessons the citizens of Atlantis failed to comprehend?

The answer is borne out of recovered memories from Shirley’s past life on Atlantis and through a series of meditations that reveal the necessity of unfettered imagination when looking for bold new truths, rendering this evocative, irreverent, and honest memoir essential reading for anyone seeking a broader understanding of what it means to be human—both where we came from and where we are going.
"I've been a questioner all my life..."

So begins bestselling author and award-winning actress Shirley MacLaine, as she invites readers to join her on the most powerful, provocative journey of her life. Over the years, Shirley has firmly established herself as a fearless, iconoclastic thinker and seeker of truth. Now, as she confronts the realities and rewards of growing older, she reflects on the greater understanding of her own place in the universe that her experiences have brought to her.

Sparked by the experience of moving into a new house, she is inspired to look back across the remarkable professional and personal milestones she has experienced so far. Surrounded by books, pictures, and the artifacts of a life well lived, Shirley is able to recognize the profound power of synchronicity at work around her, discovering the invisible threads that stitch together the seemingly random events of her days, adding meaning even to the mundane.

Having grown older, she is increasingly concerned with the potential pitfalls of modern medicine. She shares personal insights into nutrition, acupuncture, homeopathy, and alternative medicine. Practical and bracing, here is advice for anyone looking to expand his or her understanding of health and well-being.

Moving beyond the physical, Shirley explores what has always interested her most -- those things that are unseen. What is consciousness? What is the purpose of our lives? Are we alone in the universe? And perhaps the greatest mystery of all, what happens to us after death?

Filled with her trademark wit and candor, this is a fascinating, inspiring book that will delight and captivate Shirley's legions of fans and fellow travelers everywhere.
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In her most revealing memoir yet, Shirely Maclaine shares deeply personal stories about her family: her parents, her brother, and her only daughter—and about her life in the movies over four decades.

“On the deepest, most personal level, I needed to work out who my parents were and what they had been to me. I knew that I couldn’t get on with my work and the rest of my life until I had.”—Shirley MacLaine

An extraordinary woman whose energy, drive, and talent are legendary, Shirley MacLaine still moves audiences to laughter and tears. Recalling the powerful family influences that propelled both her and her brother, Warren Beatty, to stardom, she considers the effect of her own career on her relationship with her daughter, Sachi. And writing about her friendships with such Hollywood stars as Robert Mitchum, Ava Gardner, Dean Martin, Elizabeth Taylor, and Debbie Reynolds, she contrasts the golden days of the film business with the different world of moviemaking today.
 
But Dance While You Can is more than a memoir—it is an unforgettable glimpse into a woman’s soul. Writing with candor and emotion, Shirley explores her complex feelings about success and failure, love and loneliness, the constant pressure to re-create herself in her work, and the challenge of balancing her search for self-awareness with the difficulties of sustaining her closest relationships.
 
Illustrated with thirty-two pages of personal photos—many never before published—here is a rich, revealing look at a remarkable woman in the prime of her life. Frank, often funny, and always entertaining, this is Shirley at her best.
“IN THIS THIRD ACT OF MY LIFE, MUCH HAS BECOME CLEARER. SO MUCH IS OVER, AND I AM OVER SO MUCH . . .”

At a certain time in life, we all come to realize what is truly important to us and what just doesn’t matter. For Shirley MacLaine, that time is now. In this wise, witty, and fearless collection of small observations and big-picture questions, she shares with readers all those things that she is over dealing with in life, in love, at home, and in the larger world . . . as well as the things she will never get over, no matter how long she lives.

Among the things that Shirley is over: people who repeat themselves (“when you didn’t care what they said the first time”); conservatives and liberals; ill-mannered young people; the poison of celebrity (“Why do so many people want to be famous when they see how it can destroy your life?”); being polite to boring people (“If they won’t stop talking, I go into a trance and meditate”); getting older in Hollywood (“How peaceful it is not to have to look particularly pretty anymore or to wear a size 6”).

In the opposite camp, there are some things Shirley will never get over: good lighting (“Marlene Dietrich taught me how to light myself”); gorgeous costars (“The vanity of male actors is an impossible wall to scale”); performing live (“Yes, it is better than sex”); and above all, brave people with curious minds (“Fear is the most powerful weapon of mass destruction”).

Along the way, she recalls stories of some of the true greats she has known—Alfred Hitchcock, Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Sinatra, the two Jacks (Lemmon and Nicholson)—and ruminates on the state of Hollywood past and present. She recollects her relationships and romances with politicians (including two prime ministers), scientists, journalists, and costars.

An unabashed seeker of truth and unrepentant free spirit, Shirley looks squarely at a world that can irritate, confuse, and provoke her, but that can also delight her with its beauty, humor, and future promise. Reading I’m Over All That will make you feel you have been reunited with an old friend who tells it like it is but never takes herself too seriously.

Shirley MacLaine may be over all that, but this irresistible book ensures that we will never get over her.
 „Ki bölcsen bírja a realizmus, spiritualizmus

és intellektualizmus hármas arányát…

Ki nemcsak a mi Glóbuszunkban hisz – napjával s holdjával –, de más

glóbuszokban is, saját napjaikkal és holdjaikkal,

Ki házat építvén magának – nem egy napra, de minden időkre,

fajokra, korokra, századokra, emberöltőkre lát,

A múltra, a jövőre, melyek akár a tér,

elválaszthatatlan egybeforrtak.”

Walt Whitman: Kozmosz

Shirley MacLaine ezzel a kötettel mutatkozott be a magyar közönségnek. A történet helyszínei New York, Hollywood, Stockholm, Hawaii, Peru. A világszerte népszerű színész- és táncosnő a negyvenes évei elején járt, amikor hosszú utazása során híres látnokokkal találkozott, s ezzel „különleges” események sora vette kezdetét. 

Az újdonsült ismeretségek életre szóló élményekkel gazdagítják. Megtapasztalja a testen kívüli élményt, döbbenetes tényeket tud meg saját és mások előző életeiről. Az út során a hitetlenkedésétől továbblép a megvilágosodás felé. Végül felfedezi létének valódi gyökereit, és az élet végtelen lehetőségeit. Új ajtókat tár ki, új összefüggéseket fedez fel, melyekbe sorra beavat minket, olvasókat is ebben a spirituális útinaplóban. 

Shirley MacLaine így beszél az átéltekről: 

„Csak hosszas gondolkodás után szántam rá magam a Találd meg önmagad! kiadására. Ugyanis olyan spirituális Odüsszeiáról szól, amely messzebbre vitt, mint valaha is gondoltam volna: a paranormális jelenségek döbbenetes és megrendítő világába. Ennek során az előző életeink, a szellemi vezetők léte, a lélek halhatatlansága – mindez elméletből immár az életem részévé lett. Spirituális naplónak tekintem ezt a könyvemet, amely fölnyitja a belső megismerésre vágyók szemét. Ezzel a könyvvel rovom le hálámat mindazoknak, akik tanítottak, akik új világra nyitották rá tekintetemet.”
