Description
Information
Combining the teachings of Buddhism with the style of Thoreau, a Zen master shares the wisdom of her hundred days of solitude, reminding us of the important lessons obscured by our busy lives.

Inspired by her Zen master's discipline with long solitary retreats, Jane Dobisz strikes out to a lone cabin in the countryside of New England, loaded with determination, modest food supplies for a hundred days, and a regimented daily practice schedule.

The unfolding story of her experience is threaded through with Zen teachings and striking insight into the miracles and foibles of the human mind when left to its own devices with little distraction at hand.

At turns entertaining and instructive, this very American melding of East and West is testament to the benefits that reflection and retreat, no matter what duration, bring to our lives.
