Stalking God: My Unorthodox Search For Something To Believe In is a backstage pass to one woman’s spiritual journey. In her book, Anjali Kumar, a former corporate lawyer for Google and Warby Parker, details her quest for answers to distinctly un-Google-able questions that are often asked in life: Why are we here? What is the meaning of life? Is there God? that she can help one day answer for her daughter. She called God from a payphone in the middle of the desert at the Burning Man festival in Nevada. She had her aura cleared long-distance by a virtual healer in Australia. Anjali traveled to Brazil to meet with a man named John of God, who performs healing rituals by channeling spiritual entities. She joined a laughing yoga group in South Africa via Skype, and baked for hours in a Mexican sweat lodge in Tulum. Nothing was too strange or unconventional to consider. And though the experiences were wild—sometimes even scary—what she found at the end was surprising, unifying, and stunning in its simplicity.
Anjali Kumar will engage in a fireside chat about being spiritually homeless in a corporate world.
