Hidden Treasure - Subtle Sound

Book coverSubtle Sound: The Zen Teachings of Maurine Stuart, edited by Roko Sherry Chayat

Maurine Myo-on Stuart (1922-1990), spiritual director of the Cambridge Buddhist Association in Cambridge, Massachusetts, was a Zen teacher of legendary wisdom and dedication. Before coming to Zen, she was a musician who never wasted a note; as a Zen teacher, she never wasted a word, a look, or a gesture. This book is a precious record of the teaching of this ferociously compassionate woman who happened to be one of the first female American Zen masters.
