About the Author

Ordained as a Buddhist monk in his native Sri Lanka at the age of eleven, Venerable Bhante Sujatha is singularly focused on adding more love to the world. As Founder and Spiritual Director of Blue Lotus Buddhist Temple and Meditation Center in Woodstock, IL, Bhante leads a congregation and also teaches loving-kindness to people seeking the art of contentment worldwide.

Bhante gives more than 380 talks and guided meditations annually, for which he travels hundreds of thousands of miles, often going straight from the plane to a podium. He speaks at temples, churches, meditation centers, yoga studios, schools, and universities. Whether he is leading a small group retreat or consulting with corporate giants, Bhante teaches that love is the way and peace is a constant practice.

His humanitarian work spans the globe, and this tireless crusader sleeps a mere three or four hours a night. In recognition for his incredible impact in spreading Buddhism in America, Bhante was awarded the highest honor within his lineage when he was named the Chief Sangha Nayaka of North America in 2013.

Bhante's approach to meditation is deep and simple, and he shares core Buddhist teachings in ways that are practical and easy to understand. A radiant, funny, and wildly energetic monk, Bhante helps people attain peace that can only be found in deep silence.

Introduced to meditation at the age of eleven, Stacey Stern has always been drawn to exploring inner worlds. She is a writer, coach, and communication consultant who loves helping people access and articulate the clearest, truest vision of themselves and their work.

Stacey guides businesses and non-profit organizations to raise the bar for their internal and external communications, and she partners with dynamic leaders to coauthor books about personal and professional growth and spirituality.

Authentic to the core, Stacey brings her heart, mind, and integrity wherever she goes.
