Memories of China

In her first book, Dancing in the Heart of the Dragon – A Memoir of China, Ramona McKean takes the reader into the heart of China as she provides a true account of the events leading up to her near-death experience in China and her miraculous return to Canada.

A Canadian who’d been living and working in a big city in Northern China, McKean took a holiday in the south where she experienced countryside hospitality before meeting with the front seat horror of a head-on collision. McKean was not wearing a seat belt and amazingly did not go through the windshield, nor did she sustain any brain injury. After the accident and before her return to Canada, she experienced unprecedented personal care from Chinese locals.

In Dancing in the Heart of the Dragon, McKean provides a sensitive and loving bridge of unique understanding for Westerners curious about the real China with its everyday real people. She shares how the love and spiritual truths she experienced in China help her in her journey back to health.

Join McKean at the The Centre for Inspired Living, 380 Cook St., on Sunday, Feb. 10 at 12:30 p.m. for a special book launch.
