From an unsolicited reader email: “I just finished reading Being Nobody, Going Nowhere, and I just wanted to tell you how much it has helped me feel grounded in regards to my search on the spiritual path. Her manner of writing is so clear and meaningful and easy to grasp. These are the kinds of books that I like to underline, ear flap, and carry with me everywhere for continual support and inspiration. This is the first book I read on Buddhism, and in 31 years I finally feel like ‘I’m home.’ What an incredible feeling to finally have all of my 'inklings’ and intuitive moments come together and make complete sense regarding life!”
