Facing our Fears:
Two Bay Area Buddhist Authors Read

Jaimal Yogis
Author of Saltwater Buddha (also a film),
The Fear Project
All Our Waves Are Water

Jaimal’s work centers on the experience of living out the ancient Buddhist metaphor of thoughts arising like waves in the water, as an actual surfer. Also, working with the mind through the experience of scary situations.

Yudron Wangmo
Author of Excavating Pema Ozer
The Buddha of Lightning Peak (2016 Nautilus Book Award winner)

Yudron’s novel series, Cycle of the Sky, is about a circle of teen girls studying with an adept of a Tibetan Buddhist tradition. A transformation is catalyzed by coming face-to-face with inner and outer “demons” while relying on the instructions of their teacher.
