Lions Roar : July 2007
SHAMBHALA SUN JULY 2007 11 SHARON SALZBERG (“Imagine There’s No Suffering,” page 63) has been practicing meditation for more than thirty-five years. She is a co-founder of the Insight Meditation Society (IMS) in Barre, Massachusetts, and teaches the practices of vipassana (mindfulness) and metta (loving-kindness) around the country. She is a contributing editor of O Magazine. Abstract painter BILL JENSEN (art accompanying “The Hidden Treasure of the Heart,” page 58) has a continually evolving style that tests the limits of what paint can do. Jensen mixes his paints himself and uses a wide variety of tools, some handmade, to spread, brush, pat down, smooth out, and wipe away his paint, which re- sults in varied, textured, and heavily worked surfaces. Born in Wis- consin, Jensen has lived in New York for the last thirty years. Poet, memoirist, and novelist MAXINE HONG KINGSTON (“About a Poem,” page 120) is senior lecturer in creative writ- ing at the University of California, Berkeley. Her works, among them The Woman Warrior and China Men, which both received a National Book Award, often reflect on her Chinese American cultural heritage. Since 1991, Hong Kings- ton has been leading meditation and writing workshops for veterans and their families. SAKYONG MIPHAM (“Free from Fixation,” page 19) is the spiri- tual leader of Shambhala International, a network of Buddhist meditation and retreat centers. The author of Turning the Mind into an Ally and Ruling Your World, he runs marathons regularly to raise money for the rebuilding of the Surmang monasteries in Tibet. DARLENE COHEN (“The Scenery of Cancer,” page 33) is a dharma heir of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi and is co-head priest, with her husband Tony Patchell, of the Russian River Zendo in Guerneville, California. Her three books, including Tu r n - ing Suffering Inside Out, address “the importance of plea- sure in practicing with our mundane anguish.” Her cancer went into remission in February 2007. MASTER SHENG YEN (“A Buddhist Master’s Advice to Young Leaders,” page 27) is one of the foremost contemporary teach- ers of Chan Buddhism. A lineage holder in both the Caodong (Japanese: Soto) and Linji (Japanese: Rinzai) schools, Master Sheng Yen insists that he is just “an ordinary person living a monastic life.” He splits his time between his centers in the U.S. and Taiwan.
