Lions Roar : July 2016
By Lindsay Kyte THE REUNITED STATES OF AMERICA How We Can Bridge The Partisan Divide By Mark Gerzon Berrett-Koehler, 2016; 198 pp., $16.95 (paper) Meditator and facilitator Mark Gerzon says this book stems from something a young national security analyst once said to him: “We Amer- icans don’t seem to be able to work together anymore. I’m afraid that the biggest threat we face is from within.” With this in mind, Gerzon seeks to find the positive in a climate of poisonous partisanship in which party loyalty often seems to supersede love of country. The Reunited States of America serves as a kind of primer on good citizenship. While recognizing the challenges of changing the political culture of politics, it offers us practices, maps, and models to help create a healthy democracy. LIVING AND DYING WITH CONFIDENCE A Day-By-Day Guide By Anyen Rinpoche and Allison Choying Zangmo Wisdom Publications, 2016; 216 pp., $14.95 (paper) “The Tibetan Buddhist tradition,” write Anyen Rinpoche and Allison Choying Zangmo, “places a special emphasis on the moment of death as being laden with potential for spiritual awakening and the tran- scendence of ordinary mind.” Living and Dying with Confidence serves as a guide to prepare for death intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. With short teachings followed by exercises for reflection and integration, the authors emphasize the impor- tance of courage, compassion, generosity, loving-kindness, and patience as tools for facing death—qualities we can cultivate on the meditation cushion and in everyday life.
