OF GOD AND GIN by Sally Burnley
This is a refreshing and uplifting book, told by an everyday suburban acupuncturist and homeopath. Except maybe she isn’t! It’s an account told in a humorous and homespun way of how a lawyer via yoga became a mystic and a healer, and it encourages all of us that we are doing the right thing and includes stories that help us make sense of it all. Along the way she meets Thich Nhat Hanh, Ram Dass and Ayya Khema. It also includes many meditation techniques and more advanced Buddhist practices. It’s both ordinary and “out there” plus it’s really well-written. I can thoroughly recommend it, because it makes the quest seem everyday and totally transcendental at the same time, and you can’t get more inspirational than that.
