AmeriCymru : Featured Welsh Publishers: Aro Books worldwide

Aro Books worldwide is featured in the AmeriCymru Bookstore. All the books are written by authors living in Cardiff and Penarth.


An Interview With a Welsh Buddhist Publisher

AmeriCymru is a social network for the Welsh, ex-pats, persons of Welsh descent and cymruphiles. AmeriCymru is the home of the West Coast Eisteddfod.

AmeriCymru talks to ’ö-Dzin Tridral of Aro Books worldwide, a Welsh printing press specializing in publishing works in the Aro Tradition of Nyingma Buddhism.

“Our two most recent publications are Relaxing into Meditation by Ngakma Nor'dzin and An Odd Boy (Volume One) by Doc. Togden. Relaxing into Meditation is an accessible introduction to meditation which can enable someone with no knowledge of the subject to approach meditation via practices of relaxation. An Odd Boy is a memoir from the period of the British Blues Boom of the 1960s and 1970s. Interwoven with this is the view that everyone has the possibility of being an artist and of appreciating life as art.”
