The voyage within

In the Hot Unconscious travels with the writer, Charles Foster, through India. As he crosses sacred rivers, navigates the Himalayas, and fights the heat of the south, he begins an even more compelling odyssey. He voyages within.

In the noise and the echoing silence of India, Foster confronts his own religious presumptions, and wonders whether the mystical traditions of east and west can be married. Most of all, he questions what it means to be realised, and if his expedition can lead him to that still centre.

As he shares the road with eccentric, storytelling fellow-travellers, Foster is changed by farce and reflection. His conversations are laced with Zen humour; his writing is numinous, shifting easily between buoyancy and contemplation.
