Meeting with Remarkable Women celebrates the flowering of women in American Buddhism. Lenore Friedman profiles seventeen distinguished female teachers who have taught in the United States. The women she writes about vary in background, personality, and form of teaching, but together they represent the growing influence of women in American Buddhism - a development that will surely affect Buddhism in the West for years to come. This updated edition includes a new section describing developments in each woman's life and work since the book's first publication in 1987.
Teachers include:
Toni Packer, Maurine Stuart, Pema Chodron, Charlotte Joko Beck, Ruth Denison, Bobby Rhodes, Jiyu Kennett, Sharon Salzberg, Karuna Dharma, Joanna Macy, Gesshin Prabhasa Dharma, Sonja Margulies, Yvonne Rand, Jacqueline Mandell, Colleen Schmitz, Ayya Khema, Tsering Everest.
