9781590561720: Finding Peace in Troubled Times: Buddhist and Christian Monastics on Transforming Suffering (Gethsemani Encounters)

In 2002, Buddhist and Christian monastics gathered at Gethsemani Abbey, Kentucky, to discuss the nature of suffering—from alienation and unworthiness, greed and consumerism, personal and structural violence, and sickness and aging. The result of this extraordinary gathering is Finding Peace in Troubled Times, a guidebook for those seeking islands of comfort amid the great ocean of sorrow.

Among those whose voices are contained are His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Pope John Paul II, Bhikshuni Thubten Chödrön, Fr. Thomas Keating, Joseph Goldstein, Abbot John Daido Loori, Rev. Heng Sure, Stephanie Kaza, and Zenkei Blanche Hartman. Thoughtful and often profoundly moving, these men and women use the wisdom contained in their sacred traditions, rituals, and scriptures, to explore personal loss, the development of compassion, and opening the heart to grief.
