We all got in touch with our inner-spirit with Meryl Davids Laudau’s, novel DOWNWARD DOG, UPWARD FOG. She’s now out with a highly relatable novel about yoga, mindfulness and spirituality called WARRIOR WON (AlignmentPublishing).
Everything is going great in Lorna Crawford’s life. She is married to a fantastic guy, is mom to an adorable two-year-old with another child on the way, has a posse of girlfriends, and recently landed a new job. The spiritual practices she has made a centerpiece of her life—yoga, mindfulness, meditation—are becoming second nature. But four months into her pregnancy, Lorna learns there may be something wrong with her unborn baby, a prospect that throws her life and her inner peace into turmoil.
Over the next few months as a diagnosis awaits, Lorna is helped along by breathwork, yoga, appreciation exercises, crystal-bowl relaxation, Ayurveda, chanting, spiritual reading, and more. Will all this be enough to get Lorna through the months of not-knowing—and possibly a devastating diagnosis?
If you love Gabby Bernstein, Abraham-Hicks, Eckhart Tolle, Anita Moorjani, and other contemporary spiritual teachers, you’ll love this novel. Lorna reads and is inspired by all the same people you are. These teachings are naturally woven into a fun women’s fiction read.
You might be tempted to make assumptions about this novel. Give WARRIOR WON a chance. It may surprise you. Meryl’s story takes the yogi lifestyle into the mainstream. Enjoy! OM!
