Announcing the Debut of Mandorla Publications

We celebrate the launch of Mandorla Publications with the release of our NEW BOOK, Dandelions Blooming in the Cracks of Sidewalks:  Stories from the Bedside of the Dying.

Available in January 2019, Amita Lhamo uses her luminous stories to reveal the power of simple human kindness and the profundity of being. She shares the beauty found blooming within the cracks of broken hearts leading us into the intimacy of the soul’s journey in death.

“Accompanying her on these end-of-life journeys, we find unexpected moments of joy. We feel a little less afraid of our own deaths as well.” Chagdud Khadro

Upcoming Projects

In Fall 2019, we will release our first chapbook trilogy, written by Amita Lhamo. As part of our new wisdom and compassion series, this trilogy lays a philosophical and practical foundation in spiritual care for the dying.

The first chapbook explores the nature of death and its role in the soul’s journey. The second delineates the principles of midwifery and the nature of spiritual presence. The third explores the psycho-spiritual processes of dying and contemplative, prayerful, loving ways to greet the final days and hours of life. Together they invite us to gaze into the mirror of death with open hearts and hands at any stage of our lives.
