Ellen Korman Mains(2018)

The daughter of Polish-born Jews who survived the Holocaust, Ellen Korman Mains became a Buddhist at 19. Decades later, the question, “How can you still believe in basic goodness?” sent her on a series of life-changing journeys to Poland to find the answer. Beyond recovering a lost family history, Buried Rivers: A Spiritual Journey into the Holocaust reveals connections between spirituality and trauma, and explores family loyalties, religious boundaries, and the invisible blessings of ancestors. Ellen has led retreats in North America and Europe and is devoted to the universality of spiritual experience. ellenkormanmains.com
