DESCRIPTION

Experience a modern classic on writing as you've never heard it before. With nearly one million copies of Writing Down the Bones in print, Natalie Goldberg has helped change the way writing is practiced in homes, schools, and workshops across America. Through her heartfelt personal reflections and her ingenious Zen-based exercises, Goldberg makes writing available to you as a tool for personal expression, self-exploration, and healing.

In this enhanced reading of her seminal work, Goldberg offers new commentary about the creative, spiritual, and practical dimensions of writing. Join her as she looks back on her life, sharing the story of how her meditation studies with Zen master Katagiri Roshi inspired her to develop practices for "writing down the bones": the essential, awakened speech of the mind. Here is a treasury of tested ideas, suggestions, and exercises that help new writers get started, and seasoned writers keep going. Includes an exclusive interview with the author available nowhere else.

Review for Writing Down the Bones

This recording is wonderful. It is, of course, not ultimate writing wisdom because such a thing doesn't exist, but what it is, is a book that is able to talk you into seeing your own writing power. Or at least it was that for me. The recording quality is fantastic, the interview at the end is inspiring. In fact, inspiring is a good word to use for this recording as a whole. This is recorded about fifteen years after the original was written, and Natalie Goldberg comments throughout on the original work. There are not a lot of comments, but it is good to hear her additional notes. Well worth the money.

I really like the idea of writing as zen, and I have found here spoken rendition of this work particularly useful, so far...
