Lions Roar : November 2009
Writing Down the Bones Freeing the Writer Within Natalie Goldberg The secret to writing with energy and authenticity is to make writing your practice—no different than any other form of Zen practice. For over two decades now Natalie Goldberg’s book has taught us how to do just that, in the process making writers out of people who didn’t suspect they had it in them. The Tassajara Bread Book Edward Espe Brown It’s no wonder so many people learned to bake from this book. The instructions are clear, and the results spectacular. This edition features mouth-watering color photos of the finished products: bread, rolls, muffins, and more. “Edward Brown’s warmth shines through on every page.” — Mark Bittman, New York Times This groundbreaking application of Buddhist practice to psychotherapy shows psychologists, therapists, and counselors how to bring a presence of compassion into the therapeutic relationship by using the bodhisattva as their model. “Karen Wegela brings a real understanding of the intricacies of Buddhist thought to bear on the challenge of psychotherapy.” — Mark Epstein, MD Gourmet vegetarian recipes and techniques from the renowned Zen retreat, where good food is a way of life. “In our modern era of rapid media images and flashing- light information, this book will provide a glowing sense of calm—hefty with substance, light with spirit, and rich with the experience of a master.” —Mollie Katzen, author of The Moosewood Cookbook The Tao of Physics Fritjof Capra The findings of modern physics have a surprising amount in common with the ideas of interconnectedness found in Buddhism, Taoism, and Vedanta. This was the first book to call our attention to this stunning similarity, and it’s still the best. “Brilliant.” —New York magazine Shambhala The Sacred Path of the Warrior Chögyam Trungpa Conquer the world through gentleness, courage, and self-knowledge. The kind of warrior Trungpa teaches us to be is one who understands the basic goodness of life and radiates that quality for the benefit of all. This is one of his most popular books. Break free from the cycle of suffering created by fear—by understanding what you’re really afraid of. If you look closely, Trungpa says, you’ll see that underlying any perceived fear—from fear of flying to fear of death—is a fear of your own moment-to-moment experience. His teachings enable you to face and defuse this most basic of fears and to begin living with bravery and openness. This year’s 32 selections include Sharon Salzberg on seeing people beyond their labels, David Loy on how Buddhism can affect ecological awareness, the Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche on the nature of mind, Joan Sutherland on the applicability of koans to all aspects of life, and Calvin Malone on the Christmas he spent in prison with a guy named Bulldog. Ever find yourself reacting to some irritation in a way you know you shouldn’t—but feel you can’t help it? Escaping that trap is as easy as learning to spot the moment the “hook” of irritation arises. Pema teaches easy practices you can use right now to transform any negative reaction into an opportunity for freedom. The past is memory. The future is a dream. Yet we tend to live our lives in those two realms, ignoring the wonderful reality of the moment right here before us. Thich Nhat Hanh teaches how simple it is to keep the present moment from slipping by unnoticed, using practices for cultivating mindfulness through awareness of breathing, of walking, of deep listening, and of skillful speaking.
