Amanda is a 29-year-old yoga teacher and travel writer who is struggling with the daily realities of life and her obsession with her commitment-phobic photographer boyfriend. When she gets an assignment to travel to the spiritual sites of India to research a series' latest guidebook Enlightenment for Idiots, it seems like the answer to her prayers.
Anne Cushman has been practising yoga and Buddhist meditation for over 20 years. She is a contributing editor to both Tricycle: The Buddhist Review and Yoga Journal, and her essays on yoga, meditation and daily life have been widely published. She is the co-author of From Here to Nirvana, a travel guide to spiritual India. Enlightenment for Beginners is her first novel.
