Shadowland: The Legend

Johanna Kern & Roy Fitzsimmond....

Based on the family/fantasy/adventure/mystery feature film by Johanna Kern: A boy considered to be the chosen one faces his destiny in the mythical Shadowland.


Frank and his sister Caroline arrive in mythical Attic Town in Shadowland, where the Great Syndicate is ruling and robbing citizens. An army of Shadows kidnaps anyone who is out after dark and the Patrolling Thieves make the daylight miserable for everyone. Attic Town is a place where the streets have no names and there is no turning back.

Not realizing that they shifted in space and time, Frank and Caroline split, looking for directions. Wandering the streets, the boy meets Donlore, a young Patrolling Thief, and trusts this somewhat shadowy figure despite his first instincts.

Caroline finds herself on a farm outside of town. She soon sets on a journey to find her brother and help him realize his mistake. She has to find him before dark. When the night falls, he will remain one of the dark rulers forever and there will be no way back.

In the meantime, the underground opposition of Attic Town begins to revolt.

 

Master and the Green-Eyed Hope....

Johanna Kern

Filmmaker Johanna Kern tells her story of an unusual encounter with the Master whom she met while spontaneously falling into trance one day.


Johanna Kern, film director/producer/writer, tells her story of an unusual encounter with the Master whom she met while spontaneously falling into trance one day.

Before the event, Johanna knew nothing about other realms and possibilities. Her life was full as it could be, and she had no time for any mythical or mystical nonsense. Yet when facing the Master in an Ancient Temple, she was mesmerized by his power.

“I am going crazy, that’s all”, she thought. “All is cool and this will soon end. Whatever it is.”

Yet the trances continued, and it was only the beginning of a story lasting nineteen years. She was given the ancient Master Teachings – now “brought back to life” from nine thousand years ago.

Filled with fun “scenes” from the Ancient Temple and stories from the filmmaker’s personal and professional life, this book is at once a novel, a creative fiction, a scientific journey, and a true life story.

Like Castaneda, the author ventures into another world as a sort of transcendental anthropologist, comes back whole, and offers a detailed, entertaining report that makes us feel as if we’ve been there too.
