What is it like to live in the modern world as a career woman, mother, lover, friend, and Zen practitioner? How does one meet life's challenges with its ups and downs, love lost, and pure joy? Wong, a physician-chaplain, invites you to pause and come along with her to explore another dimension of our existence as women that is rarely acknowledged in our busy life. Through pithy haiku poems and stunning photography, this book will open your eyes, mind, and heart to an inner journey. It is also a story of the discovery of the deep practice of loving presence—a boundless love that is fully present and without expectations—as we embrace the beauty and the heartaches that is life.
