May 5. 2012 I had the great pleasure to host the Book Launch Party celebrating the publication of my auto-biography Girls Don’t Ride Motorbikes – A Spiritual Adventure Into Life’s Labyrinth at the Christine Frechard Gallery in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Thank you for everyone who joined the celebration.
Girls Don’t Ride Motorbikes chronicles a modern day pilgrimage in which I embark onto a 7,430 mile solo motorcycle adventure across the US to walk labyrinths. On my journey, I recount poetic life stories spanning my youth on a dairy farm in Germany, a 10-week solo backpacking trip in Brazil, the turmoil of living in Tel Aviv, to my most recent chronicles in the United States.
As I travel cross-country from labyrinth to labyrinth, these stories are woven together intricately to provide insights allowing the reader to reflect on their own spiritual journey.
The title of the book Girls Don’t Ride Motorbikes comes from a mantra of my youth, embedded into my mind by my father. Born from very traditional parents with their own expectations, I had the courage to make my own path. I pursued everything I wasn’t supposed to do and found adventure and true fulfillment in life. Through my example I hope to inspire others to listen to their inner yearnings and follow the voice of their hearts.
British labyrinth expert and author Sig Lonegren, says Girls Don’t Ride Motorbikes – A Spiritual Adventure Into Life’s Labyrinth feels like a gentle overview of alternative thinking wrapped in a Travels with Charley (Steinbeck) package. “Dorit Brauer has written a very readable and informative narrative of her experiences while walking a number of different labyrinths. Unlike most of us who walk blindly through most of our lives, these are paths where life is present. She also exposes the reader to a number of other techniques that can be used to enhance the possibility of spiritual connection. If you don’t know much about these magical single-path tools, this is a great place to start – and it’s a good refresher for those who have already been walking them for a while.” – Sig Lonegren, Author of Labyrinths: Ancient Myths & Modern Uses
