Product Details

Praise

“Reveals the evolution of this prolific writer and Buddhist thinker. . . . This body of work points to the heart of practice and, ultimately, what it is to live this human life.”—Lion’s Roar

“These moving contemplations showcase the intricate workings of a wise mind.”—Publishers Weekly

“This is a wise book. The universality in these teachings will appeal to anyone on a spiritual path.”—Spirituality & Practice

“The author’s earnestness and his vulnerability are what make the collection such a pleasure to read. . . . As we catch glimpses into Fischer’s life journey, it becomes increasingly apparent how eclectic, impactful, and innovative his approach has been.”—Buddhistdoor Global

“Steeped in a fundamental openness to life and relationship, Norman Fischer’s tender, unflinching reflections never fail to bring me solace and deliver me to a felt-sense of loving presence to life—to our own and to each other’s humanity—as ‘liberation itself.’ Among these reflections on the terrible beauty and aching sadness of life you will find the qualities of a wise best friend: everyday sanity, the encouragement to risk trust, and the committed hopefulness that things will be all right. A just-right companion for these times.”—Rhonda V. Magee, author of The Inner Work of Racial Justice

“This book is funny—but serious too, as any book about dedication must be. It is also humble, inviting, clear. Most people probably think of Zen as solitary and austere; Fischer, however, emphasizes the commitment to a community of practice. We all need that and most of us have no idea where to find it. This book is a good place to start.”—Rae Armantrout, Pulitzer Prize–winning poet and author of Conjure

“This book is a treasure. Eastern dharma has truly been transmitted to the West. The book is also beautifully structured. Help with love, relationship, grief, death, injustice, politics, is close at hand. Reading Fischer’s book in these hard times emits a sigh of relief. Things almost make sense—even if upside down sense—the body lets go and relaxes.”—Natalie Goldberg, author of Three Simple Lines and Writing Down the Bones
