Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche's experience begins the night he has chosen to embark on a four-year wandering retreat, slipping past the monastery gates. Alone for the first time in his life, he sets out into the unknown. His initial motivation is to step away from his life of privilege and to explore the deepest, most hidden aspects of his being, but what he discovers throughout his retreat - about himself and about the world around us - comes to define his meditation practice and teaching.

Just three weeks into his retreat, Rinpoche becomes deathly ill and his journey begins in earnest through this near-death experience. Moving, beautiful and suffused with local colour, Wandering is the story of two different kinds of death: that of the body and that of the ego, and how we can bridge these two experiences to live a better and more fulfilling life. Rinpoche's skilful and intimate account of his search for the self is a demonstration of how we can transform our dread of dying into joyful living.

About the Authors

Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche was born in the Himalayan border regions between Tibet and Nepal. His book, The Joy of Living: Unlocking the Secret and Science of Happiness, debuted on the New York Times bestseller list and has been translated into over twenty languages. In early June, 2011, Mingyur Rinpoche walked out of his monastery in Bodhgaya, India and began a 'wandering retreat' that lasted four and a half years.

Helen Tworkov is the founder of Tricycle: The Buddhist Review and author of Zen in America: Profiles of Five Teachers. She has studied in both the Zen and Tibetan traditions. She began studying with Mingyur Rinpoche in 2006 and worked with him on Turning Confusion into Clarity, A Guide to the Foundation Practice of Tibetan Buddhism.
