9781895897647: Arousing the Goddess

Arousing the Goddess is the third book in Tim Ward's trilogy of exotic Asian adventures. It tells the story of two young lovers who discover the secrets of tantic sex while exploring the Buddhist ruins of India.

Set against an extraordinary and vivid portrait of India, from the most wretched slums of Calcutta, to the festivals on the banks of the Ganges in the holy city of Varanasi, Arousing the Goddess is by far Tim Ward's most intimate work to date.

Tim Ward is a Canadian journalist who, after taking a philosophy degree at the University of British Columbia, spent six years in the Orient. He is the author of What the Buddha Never Taught and The Great Dragon's Fleas.

Review:

"Ward tackles humanity's greatest ongoing challenge, which I've never seen anyone do so well. He brings masculine and feminine (both divine, mysterious and powerful) together in a healing, life-affirming way. -- Melanie Choukas-Bradley, author of City of Trees

"Ward's wonderful new [travelogue], Arousing the Goddess contains a great deal of food for thought in a spiritually anorexic time, and it is beautifully written." -- Quill & Quire

Books in Canada Arousing the Goddess, as a title, did nothing to attract me to this book. Not that I'm averse to goddesses or to the raising of the long-neglected female principle, but it seems to me that the subject has been overworked in the last few years and that some of the resulting writing has been less than first-rate. Then I saw the author's name: Tim Ward, Canadian journalist and travel writer. His first book, What the Buddha Never Taught, had fairly entranced me with its description of his stay in a Thai monastery and his initiation as a kind of lay monk. His second book, The Great Dragon's Fleas, had proved equally fascinating, with its overall picture of his travels through remote parts of Asia during the eighties. Ward's journalistic skills and lively writing style conjure up the colour and flavour of exotic places, but it is the viewpoint of. Bookseller Inventory # 8898044943

His second book, The Great Dragon's Fleas, had proved equally fascinating, with its overall picture of his travels through remote parts of Asia during the eighties. Ward's journalistic skills and lively writing style conjure up the colour and flavour of exotic places, but it is the viewpoint of a philosophical mind with a mystical bent that gives the work its depth. Ward penetrates the hearts and minds of the spiritual seekers he meets, and so manages to go below the surface of the cultures he encounters, since these are informed by their spiritual beliefs in a way that is not true of the West. Both the inner and outer journeys are told with disarming candour and a lively sense of humour. No doubt the expectations raised by these two books deepened the disappointment I felt in reading Ward's third book. The book is presented as a novel, the third part of The Nirvana Trilogy. A trilogy of two non-fiction books and one novel may seem a little odd. It is autobiographical fiction, however, and fits smoothly into the framework provided by The Great Dragon's Fleas. The latter work in fact is like a large canvas, with the other two books being enlarged details. In it, the Thai monastery experience is mentioned and even the fact that a book had already resulted from it. It also talks of Ward's travels through India and mentions an affair of the heart with a European woman whom he meets there; this is recognizabl. Bookseller Inventory # 0003847
