Publisher's Summary

"Zen howl is the sound of our masks falling away," says Natalie Goldberg. When the masks we hide behind wither and die, there is immediate intimacy between ourselves and the world. This hint of intimacy, of touching something out of reach, is what ignites our longing to write and our desire to practice meditation.

With Zen Howl, the best-selling author of Writing Down the Bones joins Zen teacher Dosho Port to guide you on an exploration of the natural (and sometimes unnatural) connections between writing and Zen. In both of these practices, we can access that place between our thoughts where the mind stops and experience the world as it really is. You are invited to join Natalie Goldberg and Dosho Port to examine:

  • Resistance - using it to your advantage, instead of letting it stop you
  • Clear intention, steadfastness, joy, and rest: four structures of Zen that can be assimilated into your writing practice
  • How to recognize "first thoughts" and gain the courage to express them

    Rich with teachings and exercises gathered by these two insightful teachers over the past 25 years, Zen Howl will show you how to drop your mask and witness, in even the briefest moments of your life, a whole world waiting to be expressed.
