The author's response to a family death and life crisis was to embark on a pilgrimage to Plum Village, the retreat centre of Nobel Prize nominated Vietnamese Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh. This wonderfully frank and funny chronicle of her 40 day sojourn offers readers the 40 Buddhist precepts that she learned. The primary theme is the necessity of discovering how to "take refuge" or find a permanent home within ourselves. She hoped and expected to find some peace and perspective. What she didn't quite bargain for were the unusual packages in which wisdom sometimes comes...
In 40 brief humerous chapters such as the Lesson in a Bad Fish, the Man Who Nicked My Headphones, How a Monk Washes His Face, and How Not to Be Sneaky, Paterson's chronicle serves up 40 nuggets of essential wisdom for modern life.
"A vastly entertaining and juicy primer on the basic guidelines for a richer life." Ragini Michaels, author.
