In 1985, Goldberg had been studying Zen meditation with Dainin Katagiri Roshi for some ten years and struggling to make it as a writer for at least as long. Her breakthrough came when she realized that she could profitably marry the two. Goldberg in- troduced here the phrase "writing prac- tice," a method of mindfulness, which, properly executed, offers the practitioner the potential "to meet him-or herself." But which comes first, you might ask, the writing or the meditating? Goldberg says the two are coincident, although "...the more we understand the human mind, our basic writing tool, the better, more secure we can be in our writing." Never falling into syrupy self-help, Writ- ing Down the Bones has held up well over time. The anniversary edition includes a new introduction by Goldberg that looks back on twenty years of teaching and do- ing writing practice, and an interview with her that describes the conditions for the book's creation.
