Aleph invites us to consider the meaning of our own personal journey: Are we where we want to be, doing what we want to do?
Paulo Coelh's grave crisis of faith takes him on a Trans-Siberian trip of spiritual renewal and growth. Travelling through time and space, through past and present, he again meets Hilal, the woman he loved 500 years before. This encounter will initiate a mystical voyage and lead to - the Aleph.
Setting off to Africa, and then to Europe and Asia, Coelho gradually emerges from his isolation, shedding both ego and pride and opening to friendship, love, faith and forgiveness, unafraid to confront the inevitable challenges of life. By writing so honestly about his journey, Paulo demonstrates that for each of us, it is in our own hands to shape our future. Some books are read. Alpeh is lived.
