Kyomi O'Connor

Kyomi O’Connor is the author of the soon-to-be-published, forthcoming memoir Finding Home: A Japanese Immigrant Woman’s Life and Transformation. In actively working to address her past emotional abuse, she moved to the States in 1990 to work as a researcher. There she met her husband-to-be, Patrick, an English researcher with Irish heritage. Her life journey led to a career change when the couple moved to San Diego for his job, and when together they entered into Buddhist practice. As Patrick became ill in 2013, Kyomi took care of him for three years until his death. Writing her memoir has been part of her journey to find the wholeness of herself.
