[ I got this from Facebook. Karen has “Courage:” at the top of the list. I prefer it like this: As instructions for life in general. her book Handwash Cold is similarly direct and applies to care instructions for our lives. She also wrote Momma Zen. She is a Zen teacher in LA. You can find her website here : Karen Maezen Miller ]
