Book review
Read Review

Rabbi Dr. Chava Bahle, whom I know through our circle of friends involved in the work of Deep Ecumenism, wrote a wonderful review of the book, published in the Journal of Interreligious Studies (JIRS) last year. Rabbi Bahle recommends the book for several purposes: as a guide for personal practice of Tara, as a text for various academic purposes–undergraduate Buddhist studies, the psychology of religion, and last but by no means least, feminist studies of comparative religion. The ecumenical thread shines brightly throughout the review!

Taking Refuge in Tara Article

This is a lovely article about the monthly online Tara group I lead, hosted on the Bhumisparsha platform. After a year of being in the group, Liz Kineke, a freelance religion writer, pitched the idea of an article to Tricycle for their Daily Dharma series. They agreed, and she interviewed me and several group members. I hope you enjoy it, and perhaps feel inspired to join our online Tara practice in the future!

The Author-Editor Conversation

This is a video conversation between my fabulous editor at Sounds True, Jennifer Brown, and myself.  We tell the story of our meeting, how the book came to her attention initially, and when she finally brought the book to the full publishing  team, who approved its acquisition.  Jennifer and I, both Tara lovers, became good friends and now fellow co-conspirators! It’s a lovely, heart-warming and Tara-filled conversation.
