Arousing the Goddess (Somerville House $19.95)

Tim Ward went to Ladakh, India, with the intention of sitting at the feet of Buddhist lamas and Hindu yogis and learning esoteric meditation techniques. Instead, Ward discovered tantric sex and love with a woman called Sabina. Arousing the Goddess (Somerville House $19.95) is the third in Ward's Nirvana trilogy, three travelogue style books which chronicle Ward's experiences in the Orient, where he spent six years after taking a philosophy degree at UBC.
