Following Your Feet: Footsteps on the Paths Leading into the Heart of Nature and Self - Still Open

$8 Adult ; $5 Youth
11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Location: Chico Masonic Family Center

The writings of critically acclaimed author and Zen master, Lin Jensen, have been likened to those of Thoreau and Steinbeck. Of Linís book Bad Dog!, Christopher Moore wrote, "Bad Dog! reads like something Steinbeck might have written had he been a Buddhist and I can pay an author no higher compliment." Of his book Deep Down Things, David Loy wrote, "Our Buddhist Thoreau gets deep down under the roots of our disconnection from the earth and each other and how we can be healed." It is Linís observation that our bodies often know where we are and whatís needed even when we donít. Join Lin in a reading of original works evoking the inevitable path each of us walks on our own.

Presenter: Lin Jensen
