Wandering...but not lost (working title)

In June of 2010 meditation master and worldwide teacher Mingyur Rinpoche left his monastery late at night and went on a four and a half year "wandering retreat". Wandering...but not lost, is a film that revisits some of the places he went and explores the many rich experiences that came out of this adventure. In Rinpoche's vivid storytelling style he recounts his "near death" experience that occurred just a few weeks after leaving, along with other profound events that he weaves into practical teachings about Buddhism and life.
