Praise

“Grounded, heartbreaking, and full of hope, Let the Whole Thundering World Come Home shows us how to meet the reality of illness and recovery head-on with courage and grace. Natalie Goldberg’s lifelong dedication to writing, art, and her practice of Zen is an inspiration.”—Ruth Ozeki, author of A Tale for the Time Being
 
“This is the book that didn’t exist: an unflinchingly gorgeous exploration of being sick while being very much alive. Natalie does not turn away from her pain and fear, but faces them directly, often with great tenderness. The result is that we can’t look away either. By not shielding us from her sorrow, we see more clearly our own. Let the Whole Thundering World Come Home is both generous and wise, glorious proof that our darkest moments are also our most illuminating, that being vulnerable is an act of true courage, and that often we are most present and awake when our future is uncertain. This book is both a comfort and a wonder. I couldn’t put it down.”—Katie Arnold, author of Running Home
 
“This riveting and deeply honest book is for all of us. It opens up the road of diagnosis, dying, and life in a way no other book I have read does. It is a powerful narrative of truth and rawness that will touch and teach us.”—Joan Halifax, PhD; abbot, Upaya Zen Center, founder of the Project on Being with Dying, author of Being with Dying and Standing at the Edge

“Fragile, bare, and enormous, Let the Whole Thundering World Come Home masterfully prepares us, young and old, with medical wisdom, love, and insight for our inevitable moments of facing death.”—Kazuaki Tanahashi, author of Painting Peace

“With alert stillness infused with intention, Natalie Goldberg meets mortality head-on. Beautifully written, this is a book about love, loss, and down-to-the-marrow courage.”—Wendy Johnson, author of Gardening at the Dragon’s Gate
