Unicorn Books and Gifts will host a book signing to present San Diego author Brad Willis aka Bhava Ram and his book, “Warrior Pose: A War Correspondent’s Memoir” on Saturday from 3 to 5 p.m.
At the peak of his career as a foreign war correspondent for NBC, Willis suffered a broken vertebrae followed by a diagnosis of stage IV terminal cancer, pushing him into a life of alcohol and prescription drug abuse. But he found relief, overcoming botched surgeries, addictions and an apparent death sentence, through a blend of Western and Eastern medicine, specifically the practice of Yoga.
Willis, a former NBC News war correspondent, who reported from the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Latin America and beyond, received the prestigious Alfred I. duPont Award, considered the broadcast equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize, for his work inside Afghanistan during the Soviet occupation.
Self-healed from a broken back, failed surgery, and cancer, he is devoted to teaching the sister sciences of Yoga and Ayurveda. Founder of Deep Yoga based in San Diego and the author of two other books, he is a spiritual musician and leader of Mastery of Life trainings, retreats, and workshops in the United States and India.
Unicorn Books and Gifts at 738 Main St. is locally owned and operated by business partners Stacy Bart and Julia Dammeir. More information is at www.unicornbooksandgifts.com
