In this intrepid and humorous travelogue, Carlo Pizzati embarks on a quest to find a cure for a backache that has tortured him for decades. Armed with his notebook and an indomitable spirit of adventure, Carlo travels from a posturologist s office in northern Italy to the rarefied mountain air of Boulder; from a trance-dance venue hidden near the woods of Cinque Terre to an exorcist-shaman s den near Buenos Aires. Eventually, he fetches up at an Ashtanga yoga centre in Mysore. In India, as Carlo engages in strenuous yogic discipline, he has an explosive insight into his past births which changes his life forever. Along the way, our sceptical, suffering but always curious narrator discovers the ways in which spirituality and technology intersect. Wry, witty and wise by turns, this is a book about facing fears and failures, and undertaking an arduous journey with an open mind and heart.
