Lions Roar : March 2018
REVIEWS I WANNA BE WELL How a Punk Found Peace and You Can Too By Miguel Chen with Rod Meade Sperry Wisdom Publications 2018, 192 pp., $16.95 (paper) When he was sixteen, Miguel Chen’s mother died of cancer. Seven months later, his twenty- year-old sister was killed in a car accident. These devastating losses prompted Chen to try to escape through drugs, booze, sex, and food. Eventually, though, he discovered that meditation and yoga were more effective tools for finding true happiness and connecting with himself and others. Today, Chen is the bass player for the punk band Teenage Bottlerocket. He’s also a yoga teacher and the owner of Blossom Yoga Studio in Wyoming. In I Wanna Be Well, Chen joins forces with Lion’s Roar’s Rod Meade Sperry to lay down his thoughts on how we can get relief from the “suckage” of life. The approach is practical; the voice is earthy, funny, and irreverent. THE TRUTH OF THIS LIFE Zen Teachings on Loving the World as It Is By Katherine Thanas Shambhala Publications 2018; 176 pp., $16.95 (paper) In 1967, at age forty, the late Katherine Thanas was intro- duced to Zen by Shunryu Suzuki Roshi. She went on to become the founding teacher for the Mon- terey Bay Zen Center and abbot of the Santa Cruz Zen Center, where her teaching style was marked by her literary sensibility and seriousness, her dry wit and joyousness. The Truth of This Life is drawn from dharma talks Thanas gave between 1996 and 2008. The volume was edited by Natalie Goldberg and Bill Anelli and has forewords by her friends and fellow Zen teachers Norman Fischer and Wendy Johnson. “I spent many years trying to be someone other than Katherine. But the more I practiced, the more I became Kather- ine,” Thanas once said. “When we’re most completely ourselves, we’re most completely free of ourselves.” NEW YORK ZEN CENTER FOR CONTEMPLATIVE CARE Join Leading Experts in Palliative, Hospice and Contemplative Care for 4 days of Collaborative Learning Speakers include: Amy Berman, Rev.
