I was considering limiting the number of times a week I use the Heymarci Blog to promote a friend’s new book, new class/workshop/product, or overall fabulousness. But it’s my blog and that’s one of the beauties of being able to make the rules. So as long as my friends continue to do exceptional things, you’re going to hear about them.
In that vein, here’s the latest offering from one of my exceptional friends, Faith Adiele, whose award-winning memoir Meeting Faith, an account on her experience becoming a Buddhist nun in Thailand, should be on everyone’s summer reading list.
Faith is teaching a few workshops in Iowa this summer and it’s a chance to study with a real star.
For more about Faith, visit her site. Faith is also a regular contributor to O Magazine (you can read her most recent O story on her site.)
