When the Bright Moon Rises is first and foremost a love story: love between the sages and the cosmic forces known as the deities, love of the sages for the people, and love between individuals seeking to express this universal force of love that exist within all of us. It is also a study of karma, the cosmic law of cause and effect. This narrative begins in Vedic India, around the 9th century BCE, with the meeting of two people and the seeding of a love that cannot be fulfilled but which comes to fruition nearly 10,000 years later during the Tang Empire in China, where they are reborn as the renown poet Li Bai and his poet wife. The awakening of her memories of previous births initiates an inner struggle that is only resolved under the guidance of her Daoist Master. This is her story. Dena is an author, storyteller, and the founder and convener of the Global Peace Initiative of Women. Bringing spiritual resources to address critical global challenges, such as conflict, social justice, and ecological scarring of the earth. Over the years sshe has worked to bring greater gender balance and balance between the Abrahamic and Dharma- based religious traditions for a more inclusive interfaith movement.
