magazine (formerly the Shambhala Sun) and the author of two picture books: The Day the Buddha Woke Up

. I spoke with Andrea on the heels of her trip to India to attend the International Buddhist Conclave, which afforded her the chance to attend sacred Buddhist sites.

, out now from Wisdom Publications (2018).
