Book Description: In Zen Cancer Wisdom, Daju Suzanne Friedman Zen teacher, Chinese medicine doctor, and Qigong specialist shares the inspirations, insights, and humour that helped her to continue to live fully in the face of cancer. With sections devoted to soothing the spirit, harnessing the mind, nourishing the body, and qigong stretches for soothing aches and pains, Friedman provides thoughtful guidance on topics ranging from hair loss and constipation to coping with stress and learning to laugh again. Each chapter begins with an anecdote drawn from the Zen tradition, followed by personal reflection, and a brief guided practice specifically for cancer patients.
