'Meeting Shiva' book launch

My book 'Meeting Shiva - Falling and Rising in Love in the Indian Himalayas' will be released on 30 August. I am celebrating with a book launch at Shekinashram Retreat Ashram Centre in Glastonbury, where most of the book was written.

Come and help me celebrate almost four years of hard work! First copies of the book book will be for sale at a reduced price and I will give a talk, sign books and treat you to chai and sweet prasad. There's also bhajans at Shekinashram that evening from 7pm.

Full Description

Meeting Shiva is a spiritual memoir. Tiziana, a single woman in her mid-thirties, is at the end of an adventurous overland trip through the Himalayas, which she embarked on to search for her tantric soul mate. When the soul mate hasn’t materialized after eight months of wandering through Tibet, Nepal, Pakistan and India, she decides to go home.

Before her departure, she sets out on a final mountain trip. It is here that she meets Rudra, the man she has been waiting for all her life. But there is a catch: Rudra is a sannyasi, a celibate Hindu monk who lives in an austere ashram in the remote Himalayas. The two get drawn into an intense, romantic relationship that soon spirals out of control as Tiziana is drawn into a past long forgotten that ultimately leads her through pain and misery to healing and transformation.
