After a workplace indiscretion shatters his elite footy physiotherapy career, Ard Panicker finds himself begging for work at a metaphysical health spa, selling Ayurvedic rubdowns to yummy mummies in Bondi.
With his sense of self at an all time low and staring down a sea of healing crystals, green juices and sound baths, Ard wonders how the hell his life took him from sport to spirituality in one fell swoop.
His search for answers takes him to Kerala, South India, where he meets an enlightened and enigmatic tantric guru. But when he returns to Sydney, Ard’s body begins to shudder with mysterious seizures—accompanied by waking visions of a terrifying, all-powerful deity.
What happened to Ard in India? … And will he ever get his mind back?
