      Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche in Conversation With Tim Olmsted

      At 36 years old, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche was a rising star within his generation of Tibetan masters and the respected abbot of three monasteries. Then one night, telling no one, he slipped out of his monastery with the intention of spending the next four years on a wandering retreat, following the ancient practice of holy mendicants. Soon he became deathly ill from food poisoning – and his journey took a startling turn. His lifelong meditation practice had prepared him to face death, and he now had the opportunity to test the strength of his training. In his powerful, candid account of the inner workings of a Buddhist master, In Love With the World (Spiegel & Grau), Rinpoche shares the lessons he learned from his near-death experience. Rinpoche will be joined in conversation by Tim Olmsted, president of the Yongey Foundation and of the Pema Chödrön Foundation.
