Description
The Buddhist women's movement represents some 300 million women worldwide, and an increasing number of American women are embracing the discipline, both as a tonic to the frantic pace of modern life and as a more nurturing alternative to some Western religious practices. This book, inspired by the 2005 Smith College conference "Women Practicing Buddhism: American Experiences," is a mosaic portrait of this movement. It presents a chorus of voices made up of prominent Dharma teachers and noted writers, artists, activists, and healers, both Eastern and Western, including Bell Hooks, Meredith Monk, Jane Hirshfield, Helen Tworkov, and Thubten Chodron.

"This book enables us to eavesdrop on the thoughts and conversations of women practitioners who also happen to be artists, scholars, activists, and mothers. It's fascinating to read their contemplations of race, gender, creativity, and social issues. That such a dialogue is even taking place is cause for celebration."—Susan Piver
