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.

From the Foreword by Chagdud Khadro:

“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.”

Upcoming Projects

This year we are preparing the first five chapbooks in our new wisdom-heart series for publication. This collection of short, pithy books is about wisdom, compassion and dying. They explore a spiritual view of dying and how we can be present with one another in death--how we can be spiritually present. Written by Amita Lhamo, these chapbooks collectively lay a philosophical and practical foundation for understanding, exploring, and dialoguing about spiritual care for the dying.

The first, Love is the Path: A Dialogue with Death, explores the nature of death and its role in the soul’s journey. The second, I Am This: The Experience of Dying, explores the psycho-spiritual processes of dying. The third, still untitled, explores the soul's journey following physical death. The fourth, Cave of Sorrow, explores a spiritual view of grief. The fifth, The Art of Spiritual Midwifery to the Dying, delineates the principles of midwifery and the nature of spiritual presence. Together they invite us to gaze into the mirror of death with open hearts and hands at any stage of our lives.
