Her discussion of the 3 1/2 Noble Truth explains a point so important in the development of any new student or practitioner of Buddhism. So often people think Buddhist enlightenment is something magical, a quick zap of lightening and one is capable of walking through walls or something equally amazing. But life is not like that and Ms. Boorstein addresses this point eloquently and approachable by all.
Sylvia Boorstein practices the Jewish faith and has embraced the Buddhist Mindfulness practice as well. She also wrote "That's funny you don't look Buddhist." Her writing certainly talks to me. I just love how she's able to share her own personal challenges and perceptions with us. She keeps it so simple.
One of these days, I'd just love to meet her and just sit have a cup of coffee with her. You never know, stranger things have happened.
