                      Bali's Famous Hhaler, featured in Elizabeth Gilbert's best-selling novel (and movie) Eat, Pray, Love. Ketut Liyer lived in a village outside Ubud and served as medicine man for locals and tourists alike. He used special chants, charms and magic drawings (many featured in this book), to help ward off evil, black magic and sickness. David J. Stuart-Fox, a long-term Bali expat, recounts his experiences and interviews with Ketut Liyer of several decades, giving readers special insight into the Balinese culture and religion.
