So, what does your sexy bod have to do with Buddhism? Everything and nothing, according to Dr. Reggie Ray, the innovative and unorthodox Buddhist leader/Naropa professor. Ray recommends a strict diet of getting into your body, not out of it, to experience spiritual growth. Disciple and friend of Mircea Eliade, Chögyam Trungpa and Malidoma Some, Ray writes with expansive knowledge founded on years of religious study and experience. Reggie eloquently leads the way through the maze of Buddhism in America. A serious book for serious seekers.
