In this episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with psychotherapist, Cindy Rasicot, the author of the Best-Selling memoir, Finding Venerable Mother: A Daughter's Spiritual Quest to Thailand, about her journey of physical, emotional and spiritual healing through her nuturing relationship with a Thai Buddhist nun and mentor.  Cindy's years long journey involves many lessons that will resonate with those going through divorce or any tranformative change, as she navigates physcial injury and healing, loss and pain and even her own gray divorce.  Cindy's path to healing with the guidance of Venerable Dammananda Bhikkhuni reminds us all that a truly open heart is the door to faith, forgiveness and love.  For anyone and everyone on the human journey through life, this is an episode that will bring hope to all with a focus on:

  • Change and the feeling of loss that can accompany that change;
  • The propensity of the mind to dwell on loss causing us to experience that loss over and over again; and
  • The realization that nothing is permanent and that happiness is sometimes in how you look at things.

Much as Elizabeth Gilbert's, Eat, Pray, Love, captured the collective conscious and the search for love that is common to all, Cindy Rasicot's, Finding Venerable Mother: A Daughter's Spiritual Quest to Thailand, touches on what is human in us all.  Listen to the episode, read the book and find connection and hope.

Cindy’s life has been a spiritual journey that took on new dimensions when she and her family moved to Bangkok, Thailand for three years. There, she met her spiritual teacher, Venerable Dhammananda Bhikkhuni, an encounter that opened her heart and changed her forever. This deepening relationship led to writing her debut memoir which chronicles her adventures along the spiritual path. She is currently writing her second book about her spiritual teacher.
