I recently read The Buddha Sat Right Here: A Family Odyssey Through India and Nepal, by Dena Moes, and was blown away by her artistry, courage, woman warrior wisdom and spunk. I am honored to be interviewing Dena Moes at her book launch at Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena, Tuesday, April 16, 2019, 7:00 p.m. You will love this woman and her book! Please join us at Vroman’s for what I know is going to be an amazing evening!
About The Buddha Sat Right Here
From the back of the book: “Dena was a midwife exhausted by her fight for the rights of childbearing women at work and the hamster wheel of motherhood at home. Adam was an eccentric Buddhist yogi passing as a hard-working dad. Bella was fourteen and wanted to be normal. Sophia was up for anything that involved skipping school. Together, they shouldered backpacks, walked away from their California life of all-night births, carpool schedules, and Cal Skate, and criss-crossed India and Nepal for eight months—a journey that led them to his Holiness the Dalai Lama, the tree where Buddha sat, and the arms of Amma the Divine Mother. The Moes Family’s breathtaking adventure—a trip that will take you from the banks of the Ganges to the Himalayan roof of the world—will open your heart, crack you up, and maybe even change the ways you engage in family life, travel, and spiritual seeking.”
