Abstract

BOOK REVIEWS theory, privilege, and entitlement. I would want to bring it into conversation with certain Muslim feminist, womanist, and Japanese postcolonial perspectives that challenge white feminist impulses to rescue women of color. Janet Jiryu Abels explains how mindfulness practice helped her to bring greater awareness of interdependence to her environmental activism. Her efforts not to waste water, energy, or food help her cultivate greater awareness of and compassion for others who lack these resources. Zoketsu Norman Fischer discusses the way Zen practice has helped him to “let go into openness and see what happens” when composing poetry, and observes that “whatever happiness or character improvement comes from practice of the arts or Zen comes from devotion and community” (p. 116). All in all, this book is a rich resource for anyone interested in Zen, mindfulness, and/or Buddhism in the West. I recommend it.
