Over more than 40 years Chan has forged a special relationship with His Holiness, the Dalai Lama and has co-authored two books: The Wisdom of Forgiveness: Intimate Conversations and Journeys (2004) and The Wisdom of Compassion: Stories of Remarkable Encounters and Timeless Insights(2013). Chan is also the author of the Tibet Handbook: A Pilgrimage Guide(1994).
