Dena Moes - The Buddha Sat Right Here (San Francisco Store)

Saturday, April 13, 2019 - 3:00pm

Sacred Belly Dance Performance by Samantha

Dena Moes 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, The Buddha Sat Right Here 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.
