The Milk of Words has been refined and condensed into a sweet and rich medicine for the burning heart. It is a stirring of honey into cream, reflecting the particular insight of a former life-long monk who has grown pragmatic and realistic in his approach to grief and sustained joy.
Sweetened Condensed Milk is a book to inspire, uplift, and reaffirm our inherent faith in humanity. From African tales about spirit and reincarnation, to Zen stories about acceptance, Sufi stories about Beauty, and Hindu folktales about monkeys who save the world through discovering their own innate divinity, this book seeks to inspire through the vehicle of myth.
After three weeks straight on Amazon Kindle’s top 20-list, the book continues to attract a strong readership across the United States and is a favorite pick for book clubs. The beautiful cover design and inspirational stories makes it a great stocking stuffer and gift item for the holidays and special occasions.
