First You Shave Your Headby G. Larkin, Geraldine A. Larkin, Geri Larkin
When Stumbling Towards Enlightenment and Tap Dancing in Zen author Geri Larkin is invited on a pilgrimage to Korea with her Buddhist master for thirty days of practice, she is thrilled, flattered, and utterly freaked out. And so begins another life journey along the spiritual path of one of our favorite authors. Larkin's account is by turns hilarious, heartbreaking, exasperating, and exhilarating, and is told with her usual charm and grace. Part travelogue, part spiritual journey, First You Shave Your Head is a lighthearted collection of Buddhist practices and principles that won't fail to inspire and amuse.
Author Biography: Geri Larkin lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where she is an ordained dharma teacher and runs the Right Livelihood Seed Capital Fund, which helps fund Buddhist-based ventures.

What an incredible writer...I actually felt like I was with her the whole time. I cried with her, laughed with her, held her when she was sad, wanted to punch Samu Sunim in the nose for being a meanie...of course that would not be very peaceful of me now would it? :) I also wanted to FedEx her some pizza and a poncho! She really went through a lot and to be honest so did I...I really felt her...which says a lot for her writing abilities and her energy...in all...this is a great book...a fun book...a must read for anyone whether you are interested in Buddhism or just wanting to be entertained by a great person who was kind enough to share her magical experiences with us...Thank You Geri for your gift...
