Revue de presse

"A refreshingly up-beat, humorous, compassionate treasury of practical wisdom for those living with cancer." (Willa B. Miller, coauthor of The Arts of Contemplative Care)

"This remarkable book combines the deep and authentic wisdom of Zen ancestors’ pithy teachings with the everyday practical intelligence required to live with cancer. If you are ill, this book is required reading, but it is also recommended for those of us who face aging and mortality--everyone. This book brilliantly addresses living fully each day while facing a life that ultimately veers beyond our control." (Grace Schireson, author of Zen Women)

"As a person living with chronic illness, this book has become one of my most valuable resources. It’s a rich and comprehensive guide to opening our minds to our life as it is and for soothing our struggling bodies." (Toni Bernhard, author of How to Be Sick and How to Wake Up)

"Daju Suzanne Friedman gives us a wise, practical and compassionate fusion of modern and ancient Zen mind body approaches that allow one to live with cancer." (Herbert Benson, MD, author of The Relaxation Response)

"Something truly astonishing can happen when we are pushed to the edge of our life. Daju Suzanne Friedman met her cancer diagnosis with the courage of everyday Zen. She leads us through the mundane and the horrific with such steadfast wisdom that her book reminds us what is possible for our lives as we engage the inevitable challenges of old age, sickness, and death." (Rodney Smith, author of Awakening)

"As straightforward as a Zen Master, and as compassionate as a Bodhisattva, Daju gently unveils the path of living with cancer. This is a healing jewel, studded with ancient wisdom and good humor. I will be giving this to many friends as a companion on the way of doing illness." (Roshi Pat Enkyo O’Hara, author of Most Intimate: A Zen Approach to Life's Challenges)

Présentation de l'éditeur

With a much-needed sense of levity, Daju Suzanne Friedman teaches the art of keeping one’s body, mind, and spirit together while living with cancer.

"Layman Wang once asked his attendant,'What would you do if a dragon suddenly arrived here?' His attendant answered, 'I wouldn't pay attention to anything else.' This is how it feels when you've been diagnosed with cancer. Your attention and focus shift dramatically towards just this one thing. While single-minded focus can be beneficial, it is also important to remember that you are more than your diagnosis, and that there is more to life than being a patient." --from the introduction
In Zen Cancer Wisdom, Daju Suzanne Friedman--Zen teacher, Chinese medicine doctor, and Qigong specialist--shares the inspirations, insights, and humor 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. Pocket-sized, with short, buoyant chapters, and meditation exercises designed to be practicable anywhere in only a few minutes time, Zen Cancer Wisdom is the perfect companion book for cancer patients.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not merely a book on living with Cancer, but a manual for living life in balance... 6 décembre 2014
Par David Caruso-Radin - Publié sur Amazon.com
I highly recommend this book.

Let me start with full disclosure...The author, Suzanne Friedman, was my dear friend, an esteemed colleague, and a fellow teacher. I am an acupuncturist and healthcare educator.

What this book is not:
This book is not another self help book written by someone who theorizes about what you should do in order to heal yourself from a terminal illness. This is not a book only for those with cancer or a terminal disease, but one also for those who wish to remain in balance and be proactive with regard to illness and disease.

What this book is:
This is a book written by a gifted writer, teacher, zen priest, and healthcare practitioner who lived and thrived with a diagnosis of stage four lung cancer, and has treated and counseled both those with terminal illnesses, and those who help to heal those with terminal illnesses. This is a book that can assist the layperson in their overall approach to maintaining health and preventing disease.

As a healthcare practitioner and educator it is extremely important for me to have books that I can refer clients and students to for deeper learning. A book that is a manual for living life in balance. I believe this is that book and I am thrilled to have it on my shelf and available to all.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I highly recommend this book! 19 décembre 2014
Par Stephanie M. Bellville - Publié sur Amazon.com
I love this book, because whether you are on the cancer journey, supporting someone with cancer, or you just want be be reminded of what is truly important in life, this book has something to offer everyone. I'm also a fan of the digestible, mini-chapter format. Suzanne Friedman reminded me of the importance of living fully in the moment, asking for help when needed, and how to have the courage and agency to navigate what can be a terrifying maze of doctors, prognoses & treatment options. What is best is that she does this with a sense of humor and zen non-attachment. Those two things provide a priceless counterweight to what can be the gravity of cancer. I highly recommend this book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book is like having constant access to a good friend who has a background in healing! 9 janvier 2015
Par Phyllis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Like a really good friend who is a gifted healer, this book has gotten me through my father's recent death. You can open it to any page for a tip on self care - or read it all the way through from start to finish for gems that bring you back to yourself and keep you happy and healthy. I think it would be a helpful book if you are ill, recovering or taking care of somebody - hip and funny, and spiritually inspiring too!

Par Amanda B. Stason - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is an absolute must read for everyone you know with cancer ... and without cancer really. The tips are so important, profound, comforting, wise, humorous and grounding.... and all are so health- and life-affirming!!! Thank you Suzanne for giving this gift to all of us. Bless you!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best, most comprehensive, cancer self-care, empowering tool-boxes in a book! 5 janvier 2015
Par Deb Follingstad - Publié sur Amazon.com
As the Chinese Medicine Practitioner at Smith Integrative Oncology (SIO) for almost 8 years, I have wished to have a resource like "Zen Cancer Wisdom" for my patients! Now this resource is available!

"Zen Cancer Wisdom" is one of the best self-help aids and a personal "tool-box" of ways to navigate a cancer diagnosis for anyone who is facing or has faced cancer. An ultimate resource for "living in the moment"; Navigating doctors appointments, scans, tests and options; Full of clear, easy and useful meditations, simple Qi Gong exercises, and great recipes for thriving and fending off the "side" effects of cancer medications. Plus, many humorous antidotes of wisdom, to help your journey be a path of life, and an aid to navigate the horrible and painful experience of any cancer diagnosis.

Daju Suzanne Friedman has written the most comprehensive text to help anyone who is currently undergoing a cancer diagnosis and treatment, or for anyone who is in remission and has found themselves on the cancer journey in the past and is looking for resources to remain healthy.

Our office, SIO, has the book readily available to all of our patients, because it is a great inspirational and practical guide, for anyone, who is facing or has faced a cancer diagnosis.

"Zen Cancer Wisdom" is a great resource for patients, doctors, integrative practitioners, nurses, care givers, palliative care practitioners and anyone who has had to face this disease, no matter which side you have found yourself on.

Of personal note:
Daju Suzanne Friedman is my mentor.
Finding a true mentor is not easy, nor is the gift of finding a true mentor in life happen very often, if at all. I meet Daju as a patient at SIO. I was very lucky, not only to be one of her acupuncturists, but to have studied under her wise, knowledgeable, careful and watchful eye, and to get the chance to laugh with her and enjoy her magical humor about life's follies. She taught me how to breathe. She taught me how to laugh in the darkest hours. She taught me to live every present moment of life, and to find the things that were "effortless effort" to me, so I could create my own life path. Her gift to my life is invaluable! And I hope by reading this book, her wisdom and humor will be a similar experience for you as well. Nothing will ever stand in the way of her brilliant teachings for me. She changed my life. And as Lou Reed sings "I love you Suzanne". I hope that this book will help anyone who reads it, to love their own beautiful life's path, no matter how difficult it seems at times, and to laugh and see into the greatness and powerful healing knowledge she has shared!
