Zen Howl

3.92  ·  Rating Details ·  50 Ratings  ·  5 Reviews
Zen howl is the sound of our masks falling away, teaches 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.

Anything by her is fantastic. Great for writers. Love Natalie. She studied with Ram Dass as well back in the day.

At first, I thought, oh...Then I just relaxed into the message and found it delightful. If you are interested in writing or teaching writing, this is a little gem.
