I am happy to see the publication of this new book, written by Lama Tsomo, a longtime student and practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism. The book outlines the basic views of the Tibetan tradition and examples of some of its practices for the interested modern reader. --From the Introductory Letter by HIS HOLINESS THE DALAI LAMA
Lama Tsomo is a great guide, helping us to make mindfulness a habit and put ourselves on the path to a more fulfilling and a more joyful life. --ARIANNA HUFFINGTON, founder of the Pulitzer-Prize-winning The Huffington Post, and author of Thrive
An extraordinarily engaging, fascinating, pragmatic, and useful guide to happiness. A gem. --MARTHA BECK, life coach, columnist, O, The Oprah Magazine, and author of Finding Your Own North Star
Lama Tsomo takes ancient wisdom and practice and makes it accessible and available. At this time in history, we need more people to take on being present and grounded, open minded and open hearted no matter what they are faced with. We have a lot of healing to do. May this book help you on that path. --SEANE CORN, internationally celebrated yoga teacher, co-founder Off The Mat, Into The World
About the Author
She now speaks Tibetan fluently and has done extensive spiritual retreat both in the U.S. and abroad, deepening her understanding and mastery of Tibetan Buddhism under the tutelage of Tulku Sangak (sometimes spelled "Sang-Ngag") Rinpoche, the holder of the Namchak lineage of Tibetan Buddhism and spiritual head of the Namchak Foundation. Rinpoche has asked Lama Tsomo to oversee the planning and construction of the Namchak Retreat Ranch, and she does so through her service on the board of the Namchak Foundation, an educational resource for a national learning community.
Her teaching has inspired American and international students, who appreciate her warm intelligence and her informal, often humorous style. Lama Tsomo is both the mother of three grown children and a grandmother.
She shares her mountain home with her two dogs, whom she describes as her "constant, loving companions throughout the entire, years-long journey of writing this book."
