Are you ready to rethink your life? Dena Moes’ memoir, THE BUDDAH SAT RIGHT HERE will have you looking back at your family, being a parent all while telling a delightful humorous story of a journey to spirituality – the kind that’ll interest everyone.
Dena was a busy midwife trapped on the hamster wheel of working motherhood. Adam was an eccentric Buddhist yogi passing as a hard-working dad. Bella was fourteen and wanted to be normal. Sophia was up for anything that involved skipping school. Together, they shouldered backpacks, walked away from their California life of all-night births, carpool schedules, and Cal Skate, and criss-crossed India and Nepal for eight months―a journey that led them to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the tree where the Buddha sat, and the arms of Amma the Divine Mother. From the banks of the Ganges to the Himalayan roof of the world, this enthralling memoir is an unforgettable odyssey, a moving meditation on modern family life, and a spiritual quest, written with humor and honesty―and filled with love and awe.
This is the second memoir I’m telling you about this week. I’m glad I got the opportunity to read THE BUDDAH SAT RIGHT HERE. As a person who has an interest in spirtuality, including Buddhism, I found Dena Moes story very relatable, and rich in wisdom. Readers will be amazed by Dena’s odessey through India. The cover is beautiful.
