Through a life-long philosophy of Compassionate Creativity, Kali weaves a tapestry of her own experiences into an inspiring, funny, moving, and magical testament to the abounding resiliency of the human spirit. Let these stories become medicine, fuel, fire, and companions that encourage you to consistently value your life as your art and your art as your life… Whatever your post or position, age or creed, come sit by the fire, listen, warm your hands, and sing!
(although your moola doesn’t go directly to the author!).
In 2016, Kali shared her book in bookstores, homes, and schools 12,000 across the country.
“A compelling coming of age journey through a life in the arts, social activism, human encounter, and spiritual engagement. A litany of joyful, hilarious and extraordinary experience… This teaching memoir illustrates universal truths and we learn that wisdom is possible at any age” – Brattleboro Reformer Review by Jerry Levy, from Marlboro College and The Clark Street Center for Culture, Politics, & The Arts
“Original, incisive, and gently challenging – this debut book provides thoughtful companionship and provocation to deepen one’s own compassion not only for others, but for oneself. I recommend keeping it close at hand to incorporate the original 111 values as part of one’s mindfulness practice. It is a lovely gift to give to those searching for calming, innovative meditations in difficult times.” – Heather Stanford, Chaplain & Professor of Theater, UCSB
