Bare-Bones Meditation: Waking Up from the Story of My LifeBy Joan Tollifson
Buy From Amazon
Born with only one hand, Joan Tollifson grows up feeling different. She comes out as a lesbian in the tumultuous 1960’s, sinks into alcoholism and drug abuse, sobers up in 1973, becomes a political activist, embraces Zen Buddhism and then a very bare-bones spirituality that has no fixed form or tradition, and spends a number of years living and working at a rural meditation retreat center. Bare-Bones Meditation reveals the inner process of the mind in a new way, and Tollifson’s account is beautifully written–intense and from the heart.
