Midwest Book Review
In search of his spiritual roots, an American who journeys to the Himalayas for the ultimate snowboarding meets a Buddhist Monk and finds his life transformed. This tells of the young man's unexpected encounter with spiritual enlightenment, and is based on Dr. Lenz's own experiences in Nepal. Written as a novel, it's especially recommended for those interested in spiritual journeys.
