In 1983, twenty-one-year-old Amy Edelstein set out on a 500-kilometer journey in Zanskar, India, the highest valley in the world. She walked alone by foot, crossing passes above 16,000 feet, sleeping in caves, meeting high lamas, and exploring a culture that had remained virtually the same for thousands of years a culture that was about to change irrevocably. Drawn by the seeker’s quest for wisdom, what Amy found shaped her life. Readers in our stressed and troubled times can now share the fruits of her adventure, and grow lighter and happier in the process.

Amy Edelstein is the author of six books, including the award-winning The Conscious Classroom. Founder of the non-profit Inner Strength Education and recipient of a Philadelphia Social Innovators award, Amy’s work has empowered 15,000 teens in under-resourced schools with mindfulness and systems thinking.
