AN AUTUMN SESSHIN: Journal of an Ordinary Woman Experiencing an Extraordinary Week
There’s no question as to the value of meditation. I understood this before I took on the journey of actually attending a Sesshin for a week. This book is about actual journal entries from the author’s experience during a week long Sesshin. There were some surprises, and yet once again human nature comes through as it usually does. The reader will get the feeling of peeking inside someone’s personal journal. Many people, after reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat Pray Love, wanted a similar experience, but could not take a year out of their lives to accomplish this endeavor. Almost anyone can take a week to pursue such an experience.
