Dreaming Me: Black, Baptist, and Buddhist - One Woman's Spiritual Journey

by Jan Willis
£9.99   paperback  Wisdom Publications (2008)

Dreaming Me: Black, Baptist, and Buddhist - One Woman The critically acclaimed memoir from one of Time Magazine's top religious innovators for the new millenium.
 
A brilliant child growing up in the Jim Crow South, Jan Willis escaped the Ku Klux Klan only to face racism of another kind in an Ivy League University.
Recruited by the Black Panther Party, she chose instead to travel to India and Nepal, where she encountered Lama Yeshe, a Tibetan monk who would become her mentor and later one of the most influential Buddhist teachers in the West.
Through his guidance, Jan Willis learned to face down the demons of her past and embrace her whole identity - Black, Baptist and Buddhist.
 
Dreaming Me is her story, one that "will move anyone who is compelled by the examined life." (Publishers Weekly, Starred Review).
