Lions Roar : May 2007
SHAMBHALA SUN MAY 2007 11 Contributors ALICE WALKER’S (“Suffering Too Insignificant for the Majority to See,” page 50) poems, novels, and short stories deal with themes of violence, isolation, troubled relationships, multi-generational perspectives, sexism, and racism. At 63, she continues to write and is active in environmental and feminist causes and issues of economic justice. For more than twenty-five years, PHIL BORGES (“Local Heroes,” page 62) has lived with and documented indigenous cultures around the world. “I want the viewer to see these people as individuals, to know their names and a bit of their history,” he says, “not just to view them as an anonymous part of some remote ethnic or tribal group.” His new book is Women Empowered, from which the photos and text in this issue are drawn. After 28 years living in Singapore and Japan, DAVID LOY (“Why We Suffer,” page 29) is now Besl Professor of Ethics, Religion, and Society at Xavier University. He appreciates the opportunities in Cincinnati to be socially engaged, and the ethnic restaurants on Ludlow Street. His latest book (written with Linda Goodhew, his wife) is The Dharma of Dragons and Daemons. KAREN MAEZEN MILLER (“The Dharma of Barbie,” page 79) is a priest in the Soto Zen lineage of Taizan Maezumi Roshi and a stu- dent of Nyogen Yeo Roshi. In daily life, as a mother to seven-year- old Georgia and as a writer, she aims to resolve the enigmatic truth of Maezumi’s teaching, “Your life is your practice.” Miller is the author of Momma Zen: Walking the Crooked Path of Motherhood. The Tibetan teacher TRALEG KYABGON (“Transforming Adversity into Awakening,” page 36) received both a traditional Buddhist and a comprehensive Western education. He is the president and spiritual director of Kagyu E-Vam Buddhist Institute in Melbourne and E-Vam Institute in Upstate New York. FAITH RINGGOLD (art accompanying “Suffering Too Insignificant for the Majority to See,” page 50) began her artistic career as a painter. Today, she is best known for her painted story quilts. Ringgold has written and illustrated eleven children’s books and has received more than 75 awards, fellowships, citations, and honors. She is a professor of fine art at the University of California in San Diego. Correction: In the March issue we incorrectly identified Cyndi Lee’s OM Yoga Center in New York.
