Originally published as a trade paperback by BEST Life Media in September 2011, Ilchi Lee’s book, The Call of Sedona: Journey of the Heart, was released today by Scribner, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. Scribner also released an eBook edition and Simon & Schuster Audio published it’s audio edition.
Before being purchased by Scribner, The Call of Sedona appeared on the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and USA Today bestseller lists.
The author of 33 books, Ilchi Lee is an educator, mentor, and innovator devoted to mind-body principles, including Dahn Yoga, which he developed in 1980 in a park in his native South Korea. Since he first visited Sedona, Arizona 16 years ago, Ilchi Lee has dedicated himself to sharing the spiritual guidance he has received from Sedona’s awe-inspiring landscape. The Call of Sedona: Journey of the Heart is Ilchi Lee’s inspired memoir that shares this guidance, along with a range of his popular meditation and spiritual advice.
“Even though this book is set in Sedona, Arizona, its audience is not limited to those who are interested in this magical region,” said Ilchi Lee. “I wrote it for anyone seeking greater fulfillment and deeper meaning in their lives and who cherishes an intimate connection with nature. I feel very fortunate and honored that Scribner is taking this book to the next level.”
“We have watched with great admiration how Ilchi Lee and BEST Life Media have independently published The Call of Sedona about which I first learned from a visit to the area,” said Susan Moldow, Executive Vice President and Publisher of Scribner. “We are very excited at the prospect of expanding the audience for his seminal work.”
Scribner Senior Editor Shannon Welch, who will edit the book, acquired world, electronic, and audio rights from literary agent Bob Silverstein of Quicksilver Books.
