5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Gift and a Must Read!, December 7, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Zen Women: Beyond Tea Ladies, Iron Maidens, and Macho Masters (Paperback)
The gift of this book is to us, the readers. Grace Schireson has devoted herself to Women's Zen practice. ( Read 'women' as anyone disenfranchised.) These stories, many haven't been told before, give us a flavor of what it has been like to be a woman finding her way in a male dominated practice. They are grouped into chapters by focussing on founders, convents, sexuality, work, dharma heirs, family. This way we get to see our own lives in the lives of the historical women. Their stories are still alive for us. We can let the energy from the past guide in our lives now whether we are lay practitioners, nuns, priests, from other traditions, whoever we are we have lessons to learn from these women who came before us.

Grace Schireson helps us learn in her fun, factual, forward, fascinating style. Yes, a Great Gift to give to us and a Must Read for women and men who want to continue a path of empowerment
