About The Other Shore
Sharing the narrative arc, like a parabolic ballet, there is a simultaneous flow between Hesse’s life in 1919 Germany and the articulated mythic India of his book, Siddhartha. Using the writing of the book as medicine to endure his own crisis, The Other Shore is the deeply personal story of Hesse’s journey of devotion, suffering, loss and transmutation while articulating a myth from which we can draw inspiration.FC216W Web

Siddhartha is one of the best-regarded and most widely-read books of the twentieth century, contributing to Hesse being awarded the Nobel Prize in 1946. It has been translated into dozens of languages. In the century since it’s publication, Siddhartha has sold tens of millions of copies introducing innumerable people around the world to Buddhism and Eastern philosophy. 

The Other Shore illuminates the stage with this unifying story and gives modern day seekers an inspirational refuge.
