We are currently in production for Amita's new book, Wisdom Moon: Presence in Dying.

As Westerners, we often gain confidence to face our fears when we can understand what we’re facing and why we’re facing it. This is especially true in death.

In Wisdom Moon, Amita connects the spiritual path to the processes of dying to create a context for understanding who or what dies, and therefore what we can give at each stage. She lays the groundwork for learning presence.

Following a series of personal epiphanies, Amita has woven together a kaleidoscopic journey of communing with nature, sitting with dying, and meditative retreat to show how death, presence in death, and contemplation of dying opens windows into awareness.

She invites the reader to travel with her into “the beauty of remembering our own origination within the garden of humanity by exploring the nature of presence as revealed in dying.”

Wisdom Moon will be released in May 2020.
