has lived in California’s Sierra Nevada foothills for over 30 years amidst cats, goats, and deer — and an occasional bear, rattlesnake, and mountain lion. Founder and director of the Spirit-in-Nature Essences, she has lectured extensively both nationally and abroad. Lila received her Bachelor of Arts degree in English and psychology along with a secondary education teaching certificate from the University
of Michigan.

“I highly recommend From Bagels to Curry. It weaves together two different worlds by showing the underlying unity. In the process, the reader gains a deeper understanding of the human heart. In From Bagels to Curry, Ms. Devi’s Jewish family and yogic community are blended together in a delightful way. It is a little like wandering into a slightly bizarre delicatessen with bagels and lox interspersed with curries and samosas.”

—Nayaswami Jyotish Novak, author, including Meditation Therapy, and spiritual director of Ananda Village
