'All Our Waves Are Water' Chronicles Surfer’s Spiritual Lessons From The Ocean

GUEST:

Jaimal Yogis, author, "All Our Waves Are Water: Stumbling Towards Enlightenment And The Perfect Ride"

Transcript

The rhythm of surfing reflects the rhythm of life for many surfers.

A deep relationship with the ocean often prompts surfers to take spiritual lessons from being in the water.

Author Jaimal Yogis is sharing that journey in his new memoir “All Our Waves Are Water: Stumbling Toward Enlightenment And The Perfect Ride."

Yogis takes readers from the Himalayas to Indonesia, a Franciscan friary in New York City and Jerusalem, while exploring the intersection of surfing, spirituality and self-discovery.

His latest book picks up where his coming-of-age novel, “Saltwater Buddha”, about his adventures in Hawaii as a teenager, left off.
