Description About the author Contents
The relationship between body and mind has always been a topic of speculation, and spirited discussion.The authors of the pieces contained in this anthology address be problem from the unique dual perspective of being women and being students of Buddhism. 'We spend our lives in bodies, and if we realize anything: we care to call 'enlightenment, it's in our bodies; ln this book we wanted to address a tendency we've both observed for spiritual seekers to leave be body behind. From our study of the dharma we are clear that the body is not the ultimate truth, and that attachment to it causes suffering. But still, we don't simply leap into tbe realm of tbe Absolute. The Absolute is here,we say, in each embodied moment-wben we breathe, wben we sweat, wben we bleed, when we feel desire'-from the Editors' Introduction
áLenore Friedman is tbe author of Meetings witb Remarkable Women Buddbist Teacbers in America. Susan Moon is Editor of Turning Wheel, tbe magazine of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship, and autbor of The Life and Letters of Tofu Roshi.
