"Good, level-headed stuff. Dobisz is a teacher and writer of
strength and experience. With wit, seriousness, and freshness, she
gives a powerful account of facing life and reality
head-on."--Steve Hagen, author of Buddhism is Not What You
"A deep bow of appreciation to Jane Dobisz for this lovely reminder--especially welcome in our contemporary culture of seemingly endless stimulus seductions--that the peaceful mind rejoices at the sound of melting snow."--Sylvia Boorstein, author of It's Easier than You Think
"Lovely brushstrokes of Zen heart/mind emerging out of intrepid Zen practice. Having trained under the same teacher, it was particularly delightful to feel the vitality of Seung Sahn's teachings brought to life in such a down-to-earth and poetic way."--Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Wherever You Go, There You Are and Coming to Our Senses
