Críticas:

"This book, with its rare and beautiful courage, stuns me with gratitude. The presence of heart that Sandy Boucher discovers in her journey through hell shakes my life with joy. In Hidden Spring, her most important book, Sandy is the spunky and inspiring spiritual companion we all deserve."--Joanna Macy, author of Widening Circles

"This is the story of a woman's boundless courage in the face of illness, the life-sustaining nature of her spiritual practice, and the tremendous importance of friends. Sandy Boucher sends lovingkindness to us, her readers, through her graceful, poignant writing and her wisdom. Her story can be savored by everyone, not just those who are confronting cancer."--Anne Webster, Ph.D, Director of the Mind/Body Cancer Program, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

""Hidden Spring" is an offering to all of us. We never know how deep our practice is until something difficult or terrible happens... This is a manual on how to receive help in whatever form it comes. Step by step we are brought along with Sandy in her struggles, and we come to understand how we might face with fearless compassion our own illness and those of our family and friends."--Linda Ruth Cutts, Abbess, San Francisco Zen Center, Green Gulch Farm

Reseña del editor:

Hidden Spring is the first book to demonstrate in moment-to-moment detail how Buddhist meditation and practice can help us cope with the ordeal of life-threatening disease. In 1995, Sandy Boucher - a well-known Buddhist and feminist writer - was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer. In vivid prose, she describes her year-long encounter with the disease, and reveals how meditation techniques and understanding of Buddhist principles prepared her to meet the mental and physical challenges of her illness.
This intimate account of the development of a Western Buddhist meditator is a triumphant tale of the human spirit in its struggle with mortality, and a guide for anyone looking for strength and comfort for their own struggles.
