Lions Roar : March 2017
Tibetan lamas in her works gave Abramovi ́c—a performer literally willing to shed blood for her art—humorous lessons in the importance of detachment. These are tales even non- Buddhist readers can enjoy. MAY CAUSE LOVE An Unexpected Journey of Enlightenment After Abortion By Kassi Underwood HarperOne 2017; 352 pp., $26.99 (cloth) One in three American women will have an abortion before age of forty-five, yet almost no one speaks openly about the experience. Kassi Underwood is out to change that. She’s firmly pro-choice but knows from personal experience that it doesn’t matter which side of the political divide you’re on; an abortion can be emotionally painful, and our collective silence around it only exacerbates that pain. Underwood had always wanted children, but then she got pregnant and it wasn’t the right time or the right partner. Underwood aborted. Years went by and she got sober, finished her studies, got a lucrative job, and travelled. Yet she still felt deeply troubled. In an effort to face her grief, she embarked on an intentional journey of healing that included various post-abortion religious ceremonies, including a mizuko kuyo at a Shin Buddhist temple. This Japanese ritual, which invoked Jizo Bodhisattva, the protector of unborn babies, at last gave Underwood relief from her reoccurring nightmares. LOVING, SUPPORTING, AND CARING FOR THE CANCER PATIENT A Guide to Communication, Compassion, and Courage By Stan Goldberg Rowman & Littlefield 2016; 199 pp., $35 (cloth) Every year, fourteen million people in the world are diagnosed with cancer. Given this number, it’s inevitable that at some point in your life, at least one friend or family member will tell you, “I have cancer.” You will, of course, want to do and say the right thing. Yet if you’re like most people, the C-word will strike such fear in you that you’ll be at a loss for the right actions and words. In Loving, Sup- porting, and Caring for the Cancer Patient, cancer survivor and hospice volunteer Stan Goldberg explains what it’s like to have cancer and how people respond to it differently. He offers prac- tical, mindful advice for turning your compassion into helpful action. The book is divided into eighty-three pithy sections on topics such as “Accept and Support Treatment Decisions,” “Witnessing Pain,” and “Living in the Present” that cover all the stages of this disease. ♦ REVIEWS LION’S ROAR | MARCH 2017 80
