The Truth is a novel that presents an innovative, hybrid genre between fiction and reality, interviews and travel narrative, in an interweaving as deep as life presents itself to us.

How does one master the delicate dance of unconditional openness to truth? How does one deconstruct the prejudices that condition one's perception? How does one learn to feel the truth and trust one's inner voice? It is questions like these that lead us in this book based on stories, conversations both real and fictional, knitted into the same tale, all serving the same purpose.
The Truth is like a map, and a map always depends on the person looking at it. As such, the profound journey enshrined in this story - and what you take away from it - will depend solely on you. This is a book totally permeable to the consciousness of each reader.

Helena, an award-winning documentary filmmaker, throws herself into the investigation of her newest documentary under the topic of “Truth”, thinking about the false premises that have defined realities for centuries and how these still condition us to this day. There are many fields to explore, such as the fact that Mary Magdalene gained the identity of a prostitute during a sermon of Pope Gregory I in the sixth century, remaining as such during several centuries, and how this influenced the role of women and her own sexuality. The disconnection of sexuality from the sacred. The inhibition of the wisdom of the Divine Feminine. This and many other premises are questioned throughout this book.

After all, how can one discover the breaches through which light can pass? How can one distinguish what is true and what is not? And how do we get to our own hearts? How do we remove the layers that don't belong to us?

As reality always overtakes fiction, Helena´s quest will bring her the truth that will eventually destroy the most important foundations of her life.

From great love to pain, from lies to truth, from the dark night of the soul to another state of consciousness. A journey that will open doors and windows for understanding a new culture of love and wisdom; the importance of the balance of the Masculine and the Feminine within oneself and in the world; the harmonization of the spiritual level with the material; and the discovery of the wise who resides in every heart. An initiation journey that allows each reader to discover its own best compass, best polygraph, whether from the heart or the gut, to reach the truth.
"There is a feeling of being transported to another world beyond time, another dimension that we are now being called to enter. Ana Teresa Silva's writing in particular is haunting and hypnotic, creating a sense of the liminal and ethereal, and I have no doubt that it will be a great success."
