Paul M. Kendel Interview: Walking the Tiger’s Path:

A Soldier’s Spiritual Journey in Iraq
KGNU's Hemispheres w/ host Joe Richey

While serving in Iraq with the Georgia National Guard, a fill-unit between the 10th Mountain Division and the 101st Airborne Division, Staff Sergeant Paul M. Kendel became a student of the Shambhala Teachings, presumed to have been handed down from an ancient Himalayan kingdom.

His correspondence with Buddhist teachers and Shambhala practitioners in Boulder, Colorado, proved as transformative as formative. The letters and his account of his Iraq experience have resulted in both a unique war story and spiritual memoir. Walking the Tiger’s Path: A Soldier’s Spiritual Journey in Iraq will be released in September 2011, from Tendril Press.
