“In Yoga of the Impossible,
a series of journeys of the mind, the heart, and the
whole spirit dance, punctuated by the most amazing imagery.
At some place in this picaresque work, the reader will
stand up and cheer. I guarantee it.”
—Mary Norbert Korte, author of The Persephone
"One of life’s greatest
teaching tools is paradox, as people have to deal with
paradoxes every day in order to grow. Diane Frank’s
Yoga of the Impossible weaves the paradoxical
teachings of union to show how to find the gold buried
within. Diane is a master tantric weaver in the way
she slips a man into a woman’s mind to feel the
power of relationships from a woman’s experience.
Her rich, sensuous imagery enlivens me to my core."
—George James, Author of Copperhead: Tantric
Lessons on Love
About this novel...
Take an American geisha, an artist who knows everything the
geishas know about love. Put her in a society that's morally
profane, and ask her to find her way. The story is told through
the soul of a sculptor who lives her life as a contemporary
Aphrodite. Katarina sees everything through the lens of an
obscure Indian philosophy, Yoga of the Impossible, a path
of seeking enlightenment through opposites and contradictions.
Early in the novel, two young teenagers face a trauma that
will ripple through their lives unless they turn around and
deal with it. You'll meet a tribe of late-blooming artists
searching for love on a crooked path. Dripping with fine art,
Yoga of the Impossible is populated with musicians,
dancers, sculptors, radio talk show hosts, and mermaids transforming
lunacy into poetry.
