"Into the Haunted Ground"
with Anam Thubten


Anam Thubten’s new book invites us to explore the “haunted grounds” of our minds where life’s circumstances – sometimes terrifying; sometimes joyful; often seemingly uneventful – encourage us to dismantle our confusion and awaken to our original nature.  Exploring the teachings of the renowned female tantric yogini Machig Labdrön, Anam Thubten presents the core teachings of Chöd in accessible terms, accompanied by playful stories and inspirational anecdotes.
