Helpers along this novel path
Colleagues on the path:
We are delighted to announce the publication of Tulku Sherdor's A Path Strewn with Flowers and Bones: A Memoir with the Reflections of Tulku Sherdor. Published by Blazing Wisdom, it tells the compelling story of Tulku Sherab Dorje’s life journey and thirty years in the dharma, including twelve years serving at the feet of Lama Sang, His Holiness Orgyen Kusum Lingpa. Forward by Tulku Hung Kar Dorje Rinpoche.
Tulku Sherdor was touched by the spirit of our trilogy that finds "the heart of wisdom within," and contributed his endorsement for the back cover of Volume III, The Twelfth Age.

Village Books - It is so rare to find an independent bookstore in a rural small town that endures through the decades, is a warm gathering place that greets one's entry with the scents of fresh coffee and pages fresh off the press, and maintains the allure every bookstore should have yet many have lost. Kathy Lancaster, owner for 15 years, turned over the helm on July 1, 2008 to Kim Padilla who has worked there for eight years, and her husband Tony Padilla. They are maintaining the same tradition, offering an online service as well. They make available a wide range of books, and specialize in spiritual and metaphysical topics, as well as a variety of books about Mount Shasta. Village Books carries The Third Verse Trilogy too!

In our office I keep a natural crystal formation near my computer monitor and a collection of prismatic crystals hangs in the window behind to shower rays of the cosmic spectrum over the workplace.
