Lions Roar : March 2013
SHAMBHALA SUN MARCH 2013 8 Contributors Introduced to Buddhism as a student at the University of Vermont, LEANORA MCLELLAN (“The Most Valuable Cups in the World,” page 29) has noted a shift in her interest, from the purely academic to the deeply personal. She was especially pleased to complete her first silent meditation retreat in 2012. More recently, Buddhism’s influence has found its way into the creative nonfiction writing McLellan has undertaken as a master of fine arts student at Emerson College. She works in Boston as a writer and yoga teacher. RICK BASS (“The Best Place,” page 32) lives with his family in Yaak and Missoula, Mon- tana, where he has long been active in efforts to protect the last road- less lands in one of the wildest landscapes in the northern Rock- ies. His latest novel is 2009’s Nashville Chrome, which looks at the music business and the destructive- ness of fame; 2012 saw the release of three nonfiction works by Bass: The Black Rhinos of Namibia, A Thou- sand Deer, and In My Home There Is No More Sorrow. MICHAEL SOWDER (“This Whole World Is a Poem,” page 19) is the founder of the Amrita Sangha for Integral Spirituality. It is a nonprofit orga- nization dedicated to exploring the con- templative practices of the world’s wisdom traditions, including teaching meditation and creative writing in prisons. Sowder is an associate professor of English and an adjunct professor of religious studies at Utah State University. His new book of poetry is House Under the Moon, which features poems about fatherhood as well as poems about spiritual- ity, and meditation. KAREN CONNELLY (“Spirit and the Boy,” page 71) is the author of the award-winning Burmese Lessons, a 2010 memoir about her experiences in Burma and on the Thai-Burma border. Her first novel, 2005’s The Lizard Cage, was compared in the New York Times Book Review to the works of Orwell, Solzhenitsyn, and Man- dela, and hailed in the Globe and Mail as “one of the best modern Canadian novels.” Mar- ried with a young son, Connelly divides her time between homes in rural Greece and Toronto.
