Lenore Friedman is a psychotherapist in private practice in Berkeley, California. She has been interested in Buddhism since the late 1950s and has practiced Buddhist meditation since the late 1960s.

     "The teachers'own words and paraphrased thoughts are skillfully woven into Friedman's lucid prose. The result is a collection of portraits that show how anyone can devote her/himself wholeheartedly to a spiritual path." – San Francisco Chronicle
