This book is a special reissue of The Wisdom of Solitude, Charles. E. Tuttle, 2004.
Jane Dobisz's search for her true self takes her to a remote cabin in the winter woods of New England. Like the great Zen masters of old, she strips away every possible distraction and devotes herself solely to the practice of Zen for 100 days. She has no electricity, no visitors, no phone, no car, and does not leave the woods for the duration of her solitary retreat. Jane's story of authentic Zen practice, as far from a scholarly treatise on Buddhism as can be imagined, is about climbing fearlessly into the moment, and thus into the world as it really is. Combining deep insight and humor, she weaves a down-to-earth tale that explores the myriad aspects of mind, meditation and Zen training.
