Opening the lotus : a woman's guide to Buddhism by Sandy Boucher( )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and held by 1,024 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do women take a unique approach to spirituality? What are the elements of the Buddhist path, and what particular challenges might a Western woman face in beginning a Buddhist practice? What profound benefits does Buddhist practice offer to contemporary women? Opening the Lotus investigates these questions. Part primer, part personal history, part guide to spiritual practice, this book opens the door to an understanding of Buddhist spirituality, which is engaging more and more Westerners as the millennium approaches. Sandy Boucher, author of a groundbreaking study of women and Buddhism and a longtime Buddhist meditator, explores Buddhism's basic beliefs, its history, its female images of the divine. Through personal anecdotes, lively explanations, and thoughtful discussions, she presents a female perspective on fundamental Buddhist teachings such as compassion, detachment, and enlightenment

Dancing in the dharma : the life and teachings of Ruth Denison by Sandy Boucher( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Delving into Denison"s dramatic and sometimes tragic past, Boucher examines the life of this beloved and controversial teacher to try to understand what shaped her and informed her teaching. In the great movement of Buddhism to the West, Ruth Denison pioneered and innovated with her own quintessentially female and unique way of teaching the Dharma. She was the first Buddhist teacher to lead an all-women"s retreat and the first teacher to use movement and dance to train her students in mindfulness. As Sharon Salzberg, cofounder of the Insight Meditation Society, remembers, "The wisdom, and the emptiness side of things, were very clear in her. She expressed all that very, very well." Catching the unique charm of Ruth"s voice in vivid scenes and anecdotes, Boucher tells the gripping story of Ruth"s youth in Nazi-dominated Germany, her years in Hollywood in the sixties and seventies as a participant in the counterculture, her world travels to study with the major spiritual teachers of the twentieth century in Asia and Europe, and her flowering as a Buddhist teacher. Along the way, Boucher also addresses the hard question of how to continue to learn from a spiritual teacher while responding to that teacher"s complex

Practicing peace by Pema Chödrön( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anger is a universal human emotion, and it can manifest in some pretty nasty ways. But it is also amazingly workable. In this guide to the practice of inner peace, Pema Chödrön shows us how to recognize anger in ourselves when it first begins to rise, how to sit with the discomfort it causes, and how to let it dissipate. By taking responsibility for the seeds of aggression in our own hearts and minds, we can help create a new culture of compassion for ourselves and for the world." -- Provided by publisher
