Discovering a largely forbidden country, Cindie Cohagan cycled across China’s most arduous landscapes including daring ascents over some of the highest Himalayan passes in the world. Her journey is not only a stunning physical adventure, but also a mental and spiritual quest that leaves her questioning her seven year marriage and pushes her towards and eventual conversion to Buddhism.
Cindie’s honest portrayal of the strangers she meets in this foreign land touch the heart as much as her lonely struggle to connect with her increasingly distant husband and travel-mate. Finding Compassion in China speaks of fragile yet beautiful encounters with a country and its people: from angry authorities, to enthusiastic prostitutes to simple families who offer shelter when needed. It is an honest tale talking about the profound intricacies of the universal human heart.
