Sweet Zen: A Dharma Talks from Cheri Huber Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Offering the unusual perspective on the softness and sweetness to be discovered in the Zen path., which has long been associated with formality and even harshness, this book includes the traditional rigor of Zen practice, but is balanced and eased with ever-growing compassion for the self and for the suffering caused by the delusion that we are separate from all that is.

Synopsis:

In these talks, given at retreats between 1996 and 1999, Cheri offers an unusual perspective on Zen: the softness and sweetness to be discovered in this path. Her approach includes the traditional rigor of Zen practice, but balances and eases it with ever-growing compassion for the self, for the suffering caused by the delusion that we are separate from all that is. By cultivating clear compassion, we begin to see the true sweetness of life.
