Seven Malas by John Leslie Lange
"....a most impressive debut." --Roland Merullo, Author of Breakfast with Buddha When James Wilder signs up for a yoga retreat, something he's never done before, he's desperate to hit the reset button on life. Divorced, fighting cancer, and convinced he's hearing the whispers of the gods, he writes love poetry inspired by the great Sufi masters, Rumi and Hafiz. And in his wallet, he carries the business card of a beautiful woman he's never met. When she unexpectedly turns up on the mat next to his, everything changes. From the foothills of Boulder, Colorado, to the turquoise waters of St. John, from the rice paddies of Bali to a dusty trailer park in San Diego, the gods lead James on a spiritual quest to find Great Love. Driven by ideals and bedeviled by his own flaws, he encounters a series of teachers--all female incarnations of Shakti, the Divine Feminine--who guide his evolution as a poet, a yogi, and a man.
