Request Title
A humorous and honest collection of Buddhist wisdom from a Western beginner'­s perspective.

Instead of promising a straight and clear path to enlightenment, author and teacher Geri Larkin shows us that even stumbling along that path can lead to self-discovery and awakening, especially if we prize the journey and not the destination. With candor, affection, and earthy wisdom, Larkin shares her experiences as a beginning and continuing Buddhist. This spirituality classic shows any seeker that it's possible to stumble, smile, and stay Zen through it all.

Stumbling Toward Enlightenmentby Geri Larkin What an incredible delight this 223 page stunner was to review. I have always felt drawn to Zen, but when it came down to actually getting it I fell quite short. So I was pleased to run across this special guide that helped me to see this camp of Buddhism in a new light. The author through philosophy, essays and quotes helped me to realize that Zen isn't something you learn, it's something you already have inside you. So I got busy playing and believing and dreaming and then I GOT ZEN. The gentle energies emanating from this read were so welcome, and I felt so free and held all at the same time. The format was easy to follow and the concepts were presented as play toys for my inner kid. I would recommend this rare find to anyone seeking a softer way to Zen. Thanks Geri, this precious teacher will help so many. Love & Light, Riki Frahmannmore
