The Orcas Library will host author Amita Lhamo on Friday, Sept. 6, at 6 p.m. in the Ann Graves Reading Room. Lhamo will be reading stories from her new book “Dandelions Blooming in the Cracks of the Sidewalks,” sharing some of the gifts she received in her work with the dying, and inviting audience members into a conversation about life, death, and kindness.
Lhamo has studied with Lakota, Christian, Hindu and Buddhist teachers, including a five-year meditation retreat within the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.
Lhamo combines her experience as a psychotherapist and hospice chaplain with her spiritual training to teach and write about the spiritual care of the dying.
Lhamo shares stories from thousands of talks as she nurtured the families, friends and individuals through the soul’s journey in death.
