Described by the author as "accessible Zen", "Stumbling Toward Enlightenment" evolved out of the frequent requests which Larkin has received for written copies of the dharma talks she gave at the Ann Arbor Buddhist Temple and the Chicago Zen Buddhist temple in 1995 and 1996. In the book, Larkin shares Buddhist teachings from the Dhammapada which she hopes will help readers "walk a little straighter, fly a little sooner".
A humorous and honest collection of Buddhist wisdom from a Western beginner'a-s perspective. Instead of promising a straight and clear path to enlightenment, author and teacher Geri Larkin shows us that even stumbling along that path can lead to self-discovery and awakening, especially if we prize the journey and not the destination. With candor, affection, and earthy wisdom, Larkin shares her experiences as a beginning and continuing Buddhist. This spirituality classic shows any seeker that it's possible to stumble, smile, and stay Zen through it all.
Geri Larkin gave up a successful career as a management consultant to become a Buddhist teacher. A practicing Buddhist since 1988, she completed seminary and was ordained in 1995. Four years later, she decided to start a Zen meditation center in the heart of inner-city Detroit. She is the author of "Stumbling Toward Enlightenment", "Building a Business the Buddhist Way", "Tap Dancing in Zen", "First You Shave Your Head", and "The Still Point Dhammapada".
