Summary Michele Hebert recounts the stunning story of her spiritual training with legendary yoga master Walt Baptiste. Journeying with her, you are transported from San Francisco through a years-long stint of near solitude in the jungles of El Salvador, as that country moves from seeming tranquility to revolution. In this exotic venue, she comes face to face with challenges that test her devotion, her carefully cultivated yogic discipline, and even her earthly existence. This unexpectedly humorous and intimate story transcends the world of physical yoga and explores its deep, ancient mysteries. The lessons she learns from Walt Baptiste's brilliant but often unorthodox methods are at the heart of her memoir, which illuminates timeless teachings and authentic practices in a tale that is as accessible as it is captivating.
