Hope Edelman

The Possibility of Everything,examines how an otherwise mainstream mother finds herself making the rather unorthodox choice to take her three-year old daughter to Mayan healers in Belize. The Possibility of Everything chronicles the magical week in Central America that transformed Edelman from a person believing only in the visible and the "proven" to someone open to the idea of larger, unseen forces.
