Francisco López-Seivane, a few yesterdays ago, opened two doors that led him down the path of personal and existential growth: study and meditation. Two practices that gave meaning to his life, and as a result have been very present in much of his work. The Spanish writer and journalist, he is recognized for his books and travel articles, but above all, for his deep knowledge of Eastern wisdom. His latest work: 'The Imperfect Master', a journey through the unanswered questions that have accompanied man throughout his existence.
López-Seivane tells ABC about the various situations and passages from his latest novel. A very important one is the search for the protagonist, Carlos, a young Spanish man who sees his life transformed by the practice of yoga and meditation, and abandons everything to follow a guru.
The book leads to the questioning and reflection on the real existence of the perfect teacher, a question that the author defines: «We idealize the figure of the teacher in our mind, just as we idealize the image of the loved one. However, over time, we often discovered that neither of them were as perfect as we had imagined. That's called growing up."
By decision of the writer and due to the advantages found in this form of distribution, 'The Imperfect Teacher' is only for sale on Amazon, in physical and digital format. Even before purchase, the first five chapters can be read.
