Golden Cages: Illusion of Freedom

Meet Francis, the mysterious, impish, and even confrontational Native American teacher. He is about to hit his new student with a compelling honesty that will flip his world upside down. Forced to confront the fraught and terrifying depths of his unconscious mind and ego, Ryan unravels. Francis’ unorthodox methods and customs seem to be getting him nowhere. Why would Ryan keep coming back, then? It’s certainly not that Francis is always right. What’s the appeal? Well, it’s the wisdom gained from taking the wrong turns in his own life.

“Follow my lead,” says Francis, “and I’ll help you get lost.”

Maureen St.Onge: Congratulations Kim for writing such a beautiful novel. I loved reading how Ryan was able to fast track his spiritual journey, I chose the ten year plan. Being a student of Kim’s I was impressed that her teachings were so well conveyed through Francis’ character, although I never saw her tough love side. Francis’ character gives the reader an understanding of all of the concepts a student of enlightenment will go through as they progress through the “grades” including the significance of dreams, signs, symbols, ego, chakras and the aura to name only a few.

I also love how so many important topics like rape, suicide, residential schools, forgiveness and judgement and even electromagnetic waves are discussed and how they impact the “Human” condition and the soul’s journey. This book is a must read for anyone who would like to understand the spiritual journey so many humans are currently on or are likely awakening to.


Nancy Parker: This book may seem to be just like any other story, but take a closer look. I assure you, you won’t be disappointed. Being an avid reader myself, I hope to find connection to the story and to its characters. I want to be transported and to go on a journey with them, to be surprised and engaged. I find that most stories have the potential to do so, but fall short and generic at best, I end up wishing that they had gone deeper, but Golden Cages isn’t superficial and will not disappoint. On the contrary, I could relate and see real living people trying to follow a set of unspoken life rules. This book evokes what our Society’s expectations sets us up to think of as Success… Teaching us that searching for Happiness is fleeting at best by trying to keep up appearances that leave us feeling detached, unconsciously wishing to go beyond the surface, while craving for connection and feeling, all the while afraid of going further, so as not to disturb a fragile existence… This is where the story begins.

This first time author has mindfully crafted a journey of self-reflection, self-discovery and deep healing within its pages that relates to a wide range of readers. I highly recommend this book and hope that you love it as much as I have.


Anne-Marie Austin: This is a wonderful, warm,  moving book, full of ideas and insights to deepen your reflections and raise you to new heights of self understanding and self awareness.  I am sure that thousands of people’s lives will be changed. I know it has made many light bulbs come on for me. Kimberley A. Doucette is a unique uplifter of humanity- an angel sent here on special assignment.  Thank you, God, for her!




A young man is about to embark on a psychological roller coaster ride.

Life was normal: chaotic, listless, routine, and unchanging. Sound familiar? Well, it was about to change. Ryan runs into an old friend at the supermarket, who tells him about an unusual therapist named Francis. Once Ryan agrees to see Francis, life as he knows it is changed forever.

Francis asks questions and expects answers. At first, Ryan is not sure he will continue; but somehow he keeps going back. He begins to observe symbols sent to him “by the universe” and, amazed, begins to understand them! “Follow my lead,” says Francis, “and I’ll help you get lost.”
