Publisher's Summary

After a lifetime of metaphysical study and practice, a journalist joins a diverse community of joyful spiritual pioneers in a remote British Columbia valley. There, she, her family, and her neighbors explore the down-to-earth application of the Bhagavad-gita's profound and beautiful teachings. Along with comic and cosmic challenges, these daring individuals harvest the Gita's rich and relevant guidance - guidance suited for any time, place, and circumstance.  

"A marvelous job...an inspirational memoir and a pleasant reminder that there is a spiritual side to our existence." (Five-star review, Susan Sewell for Readers' Favorite)                         

"In the morning, I bathe my intellect in the stupendous and cosmogonical philosophy of the Bhagavad-gita in comparison with which our modern world and its literature seem puny and trivial." (Henry David Thoreau, American poet, philosopher, and naturalist)  

"Bhagavad-Gita is one of the most beautiful and profound texts of world literature." (Octavio Paz, Mexican poet and diplomat; Nobel Prize in Literature)  

"That the spiritual man need not be a recluse, that union with the divine Life may be achieved and maintained in the midst of worldly affairs, that the obstacles to that union lie not outside us but within us - such is the central lesson of the Bhagavad-gita." (Annie Besant, British socialist, theosophist, activist, writer, and orator)

"Those who meditate on the Gita will derive fresh joy and new meanings from it every day." (Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi)
