Tsultrim Allione is the author of the classic work Women of Wisdom, and the founder of the Tara Mandala in Colorado. She travels worldwide teaching Western Buddhism. Website: www.taramandala.org
Allione, one of the first women in America to be ordained in the Tibetan tradition, as well as author of Women of Wisdom, has added considerably to the store of current wisdom herself in this appealing and important new book. The notion of feeding demons is in itself attractive to a certain temperament, but the demons Allione has in mind are not the horned and tailed terrors of many religions' hells but "our obsessions and fears, chronic illnesses, depression, anxiety, and addiction." Allione has a five-step method for encountering, understanding, and even befriending the inner demons that prevent us from being our best selves. Includes an appendix with an abbreviated five-step method; for most collections. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
