Cindy Rasicot worked for many years for non-profit organisations. In 2005 she travelled to Thailand with her family where she met Bhikkhuni Dhammananda – an encounter that changed her life.
In 2020 she wrote Finding Venerable Mother: A Daughter’s Spiritual Quest to Thailand. Since then she has written articles in journals and anthologies, and started the online Casual Buddhism series to give more people access to Bhikkhuni Dhammananda’s gentle and powerful wisdom.
She lives in Point Richmond, California, where she enjoys the view of San Francisco Bay.
