Naked in the Zendo : Stories of Uptight Zen, Wild-Ass Zen, and Enlightenment Wherever You Are
by Grace Schireson and Joan Halifax




Overview -
A collection of charming and funny stories on how to turn the awareness we find on the meditation cushion into wisdom for every day.

We need to remove our ego's clothing to truly see ourselves and the world as they are. Grace Schireson's stories about her Zen journey--from child to grandmother--share deep insight about how we can find awareness, feel it in our bodies, and experience it wherever we are. Grace's path is at times ordinary--with stories of youthful naiveite (Will Zen Get You High?), parenting (You Exist; Therefore, I Am Embarrassed), and pets (The Honorable Roshi Bully Cat)--and groundbreaking--with stories of her studies with Suzuki Roshi (What's Love Got to Do with It?), Keido Fukushima Roshi (Don't Bow), and more. Each story, whether humorous or poignant, highlights the power of awareness to transform our lives and the remarkable work of this pioneering woman in American Zen.
