Limitless Sky

Life lessons from the Himalayas


This is the remarkable true story of a young man's initiation in the Himalayas. David Manners was trekking in Nepal when he stumbled upon the mountain home of a jhankri, or Nepalese shaman. The jhankri accepted David as his pupil, and so began the next stage of David's extraordinary journey, in which he embarked upon an adventure that was more challenging and, ultimately, life-affirming than anything he could have imagined.

In Limitless Sky, David shares the wisdom and insights he learnt from those transformational days in the Himalayas. These include practical guidance on how to live a full and fearless life, how to find happiness and how to live in ways that nurture both ourselves and others. As David reveals, the life lessons he learned amongst the mountains of the Himalayas could benefit us all today.


  • Stunning...enthralling...really remarkable and compelling, full of wisdom, humour and beauty...I love the bravery, curiosity and honesty that streams from this immense adventure
