Dreaming Me: Black, Baptist, and Buddhist: One Woman's Spiritual Journey
Jan Willis is not Baptist "or" Buddhist. She is simply both. "Dreaming Me" is the story of her life, from growing up a Baptist in the segregated South, dealing with racism in an Ivy League college, and becoming involved with the Black Panther Party to traveling to a Tibetan Buddhist monastery. It was upon meeting the great teacher Lama Yeshe that she found a way to understand both herself and the complicated world around her, a way to find peace. Willis went on to become a professor of religion at Wesleyan and is also an internationally recognized educator and innovator. "Dreaming Me" is the inspiring story of her spiritual journey of transformation.
