About the Author

"The greatest gift a book can offer is the wisdom that elevates our consciousness into compassionate actions that honor the interdependency of all life. This book delivers that gift with poetic beauty, fearless grace and the bold reality of what it means to be human. Reading it will inspire you, provoke you, keep you up at night, and most of all, change you."
~ Cheryl Richardson, bestselling author of Take Time for Your Life.

As one of the first Westerners to ordain as a Buddhist monk in Burma, he lived in a monastery for many years training in Buddhist psychology and mindfulness meditation.
