Sweetened Condensed Milk is a modern retelling of ancient wisdom in old stories. 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. It reflects the particular insight of a former life-long monk who has grown pragmatic and realistic in his approach to grief and sustained joy. Myth and metaphor have a way of revealing the inexplicable, hopefully free of dogma… and whatever truths you may uncover are yours and not the storytellers.
