What others have said--

"...This book is a tremendous catalyst, causing the readers to re-examine their life, decisions, and spiritual path. I know I did." -- Michael Peter Langevin, Magical Blend magazine

"Darrell Yardley shares with us his challenging journey to insight and enlightenment. His style is engaging and conversational -- an easy read into a powerful subject. Thank you, Darrell, for putting yourself on the line and telling your open and honest story." --Alan Seale, author of On Becoming a 21st-Century Mystic: Pathways to Intuitive Living.

"A fantastic journey of spiritual transition and empowerment."-- Diane Zimberoff, author of Breaking Free from the Victim Trap.


"Darrell Yardley's WindWalker is such an excitement, from the cover's design, color, and layout to the powerful story itself. His motorcycle is more than a bike: it is his partner, much like another person traveling with him on his spiritual and personal journey. I could not put this book down and got up in the middle of the night to finish reading it. The book is so personal that as I read, I could hear his voice as if he were speaking directly to me. So powerful is his story that it reawakened in me my own experiences in the Temazcal, Native American Sweat Lodge, and other experiences. His book also reawakened the things in my own life that I had not been doing, like meditating, to move forward on my own spiritual journey. It was like a wakeup call for my own spiritual path. The book is not only a powerful story, but is also informative, integrating his first-hand knowledge of different spiritual paths from traditions from East and West, ancient and contemporary. It encourages one to look inside and be much more than the person they thought they were. It is empowering. His journey is so powerful because it truly is a journey from the Heart."-- Ruth Terry, a reader

"Darrell Yardley's WindWalker is a story of a personal quest into purpose, metaphysics, spirituality and fun, from the seat of a Harley Davidson. It is a story of power, emotion, and adventure, touching deep into the spiritual roots of the author's journey into authentic selfhood. Described as "A Vision Quest on a Harley," WindWalker is the author's own inspirational, true-life journey from scientist and professor to mystic, teacher, and personal and spiritual coach. It is a story of personal exploration,and transition told against a backdrop of motorcycle adventures and exotic journeys into Native American spirituality and shamanism. This book is an inspiration for those wanting to make transition and changes in their own lives, searching for a path with a heart, and wanting to live a more authentic life."-- Patrick Williams, President Therapist University and Master Certified Coach
