‘The women and men who read this book can take great heart. Martine Batchelor has recorded unique and beautiful voices of feminine Dharma. These awakenings in the midst of snow caves, family life, arts and austerity, intimacy and celibacy, bring alive the blessings and true medicine of the Buddha.’
Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart and After the Ecstasy, the Laundry
‘Here is teaching with a difference, for it is from a woman's point of view. Many of the teachers are remarkable nuns, and their advice is both creative and profound. This is a book not to be missed by any Buddhist.’
Anne Bancroft, author of Women in Search of the Sacred
From the Back Cover
In 'A Woman's Guide to Buddhism', Martine Batchelor weaves together the stories and experiences of Buddhist women from the East and the West.
These women come from all walks of life – artists, social workers, psychotherapists, nuns, professors, even a hermit and a disc jockey. They all follow their unique paths and yet what they have in common is a meditation practice that has transformed their existence. Their stories illustrate how women can integrate Buddhism and meditation into their busy family and working lives. This book is an inspiration not only to Buddhists but also to all women who are seeking to incorporate spirituality into their daily lives.
"I loved this book. Reading it feels like accompanying Martine on a great adventure of the spirit, making new friends while learning new Dharma."
"The stories focus more on life than on ideas, they easily catch the reader's attention and provide varied and rich nourishment."
'SYLVIA WETZEL, Journal of Buddhist Ethics'
Martine Batchelor spent many years as a Zen Buddhist nun in Korea. She is an internationally renowned teacher of meditation and now lives in France.See all Product Description

Readers should be aware that this book was published virtually verbatim as "Walking on Lotus Flowers," also in 1996 and by Thorsons. While this publishing gaffe is not explained, the content of the work is exceptional in both books! Readers who had purchased the same text twice due to the title confusion should pass one copy on to their sisters. (Or even their brothers!)
