Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Donna Quesada had been teaching for about a dozen years when the first signs of burnout hit her. Rather than give into her frustration, she reached for Buddhas teachings—the Zen wisdom that formed the basis of her own longtime spiritual practice. She survived the semester and gradually rediscovered the joy of teaching that had been progressively declining. In this wonderful book, she shares the lessons she learned—lessons that reveal time and again: No matter the situation, its always about getting your head in the right place first. Resolution begins in our own minds. Some days, some semesters, and even some years will be more challenging and more wearisome than others, she warns. But in Buddha in the Classroom, Quesada offers a lasting source of encouragement and inspiration. Although the book draws from Eastern teachings, the wisdom is for everyone, regardless of personal background, creed, or faith.

With elements of The Last Lecture as well as Chicken Soup for the Teachers Soul, this is the perfect gift for teachers—but also for anyone needing inspiration.

Synopsis:

Treasured lessons by a teacher for the six million teachers in the United States.

About the Author

Donna Quesada is a professor at Santa Monica College. Although she has taught all facets of philosophy, her concentration is in Asian Philosophy. She has been a practicing Zen Buddhist since 1992 and is a certified yoga instructor. She took her Buddhist precepts in 2005 with Nyogen Yeo Roshi, the last successor of Taizan Maezumi Roshi and abbot of Hazy Moon Zen Center in Los Angeles. Taizan Maezumi Roshi was one of the first Japanese masters to bring Zen to the West and a seminal figure in twentieth-century Zen. Quesada lives with her family in Culver City, California.
