In this intimate collection of personal stories and advice, Allison Choying Zangmo and Carolyn Kanjuro team up to reflect on their experiences as lifelong practitioners of Buddhism, their own relationships with their partners who are also their spiritual guides, and the transformative power of the student-teacher relationship. As both students and leaders in their Buddhist communities, Allison and Carolyn possess clear insights into how we can successfully interpret traditional Buddhist understandings of spiritual mentorship for today’s world.
