Tenzin, named Barbara Emi Kiyosaki at birth, received the name Tenzin Kacho when she was ordained by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 1985. Tenzin practiced as a Buddhist nun for 27 years and when she returned to lay life, retained “Tenzin” for her name to always remember her spiritual roots. Studying death and dying grew into a strong interest particularly after suddenly losing her mother.
I wrote The Three Regrets to create a tool to help clean up regrets, settle unresolved issues with loved ones, and set themselves up for a peaceful life. The Three Regrets offers an easy way to begin discussing what is important by engaging and recounting life’s shared adventures and indelible moments, appreciating others, and normalizing death as a part of life.1 April 2021
