Judith Lief has taught internationally on death and dying and on the application of mindfulness-awareness training. As one of the foremost students of meditation master Chogyam Trungpa, she is a well-known teacher in the Buddhist and Shambhala traditions. She is a pastoral counselor at Maitri Day Health Center in Yonkers, New York, serving formerly homeless persons with AIDS.
“Trungpa’s notion of dharma art is an approach to art as meditation, an attitude of directness and unselfconsciousness in creative work. Lief’s inspired selection and careful editing make this an essential book for those committed to view that the artist should be a spiritual teacher.”—Publishers Weekly
