Lions Roar : July 2017
REVIEWS SIT, WALK, DON’T TALK How I Survived a Silent Meditation Retreat By Jennifer Howd Parallax Press, 2017; 111 pp., $14.95 (paper) For her fortieth birthday, Jennifer Howd gave herself a special present: a nine-day silent meditation retreat at the Spring Insight Retreat in Yucca Valley, California. Things started badly. After checking in, her throat began to ache and her sinuses closed. She missed her partner. Then the menstrual cramps began. In time, she got past the discomfort, fellow medi- tators who made too much noise, and her own racing, judgemental mind, and reached a place where she could forgive herself for her mistakes of the past. Four years after the retreat, she reports that she is now slower to judge and that anxiety and depression are less likely to hijack her life. She’s still attending retreats which, if not a cure-all, continue to influence her life in “deeply profound and significant ways.” ALL OUR WAVES ARE WATER Stumbling Toward Enlightenment and the Perfect Ride By Jaimal Yogis Harper Wave, 2017; 272 pp., $17.10 (cloth) With a boom box and a copy of Siddhartha, Jaimal Yogis left home at sixteen to surf the big waves of Hawaii and enter a Zen monastery, an adventure he recounted in his first book, Saltwater Buddha. All Our Waves Are Buddha picks up the story. In his twenties, heartbroken and rudderless, he hits the road again to continue his search for “God, enlight- enment—or whatever your preferred word is for the principle that unites us.” Along the way, he gains insights from Richard Thurman and a displaced Tibetan Monk named Sonam. But as much as anything, Yogis’ real teachers are the waves that he chases off the beaches of Mexico and California, where he attempts to under- stand what the poet Rumi meant when he wrote, “We are not a drop in the ocean. We are the ocean in a drop.” June–August Retreats in the Unite States, Toronto & the UK for TEENS & YOUNG ADULTS MINDFULNESS RETREATS iBme.info/lions LION’S ROAR | JULY 2017 78
