A Story of Karma: Finding Love and Truth in the Lost Valley of the Himalaya

A new book by Michael Schauch

In 2012, SMD supporter Michael Schauch and his wife Chantal traveled from Vancouver, Canada to a remote mountain village in Nepal. Leading a team of artists with the objective of capturing a moment in time, Michael also hoped to climb a mountain he had only identified through a photograph. What unfolded in the mountains forced him to question his values and his own identity, and eventually resulted in meeting a little girl ~ the most profound encounter of his life. A Story of Karma recounts this journey, and the years that follow as Karma (the little girl), Michael and Chantal grow their lives together amidst the complex dichotomies and backdrop of Karma’s Himalayan village and the modern world of Vancouver, Canada.

Michael’s book, A Story of Karma has a page dedicated to SMD and is available for order at your local bookstore and major book retailers worldwide. Check out the book trailer below, and learn more at www.michaelschauch.com
