Max and Phoebe Go to Kalapa
A Child's Tale of Bravery by Christie Cashman, Illustrated by Ambika Rutherford

Max & Phoebe Go to Kalapa by Christie Cashman

Advance Praise:
In the midst of family sadness, Phoebe and Max embark on an adventure of direct perception, magical powers, allies, and treasures. Like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, the children return stronger and more equipped to help others, while discovering that the magic they needed was always to be found at home. My 9-year-old daughter loved this book!—Amelie Bracher, MA, Psychotherapist

With its layers of insight into Shambhala culture, Max & Phoebe Go to Kalapa shows ways to work with the challenges of sadness, fear, doubt, and irritation that we have all experienced. An inspiring resource for children's programs, Family Camp, Rites of Passage, and beyond. A great gift for grandparents and parents to share with children as they grow.—Tracy Suchocki, Shambhala Office of Families & Children

Christie Cashman invites children into a powerful meditative tradition that includes meeting the dralas, the four dignities, the lhasang ceremony, and warrior songs. A very accessible offering. Highly recommended.—Steve Sachs, Director of Alaya Preschool, Boulder

From the back cover:
A must-read for any family who aspires to arm their child with contemplative power. This masterful tale offers instructions for both children and adults on transforming fear into the great courage required by all of us today.—Carolyn Mandelker, Director of the Shambhala School, K–12, Halifax, Nova Scotia

The power of story is frequently used to transmit family wisdom from one generation to another. Max & Phoebe Go to Kalapa is just that kind of story. From the depth of her meditation training steeped in the ancient tradition of Shambhala, Christie Cashman takes us on an inner journey to a kingdom hidden in mystery, legend, and prophecy. This adventure reveals the magic of the natural world, while bringing forward our own natural human powers—loving kindness, bravery, and wisdom.
