Overview

The Passionate Heart is a fascinating and intimate story of an American Buddhist Teacher and his aspiring, inspired student; a rare glimpse into the private, dynamic and formal teacher/student relationship. In her 11th year as an apprentice, Zoe's teacher asks her to write a book for him. Even though she leaves suddenly and unexpectedly, she completes the promised task. Framing the entire original text with an introduction and afterword written 10 years later, Zoe shares insight and wisdom that only time and distance can create.

Buddhist initiations, mystical desert experiences and past life revelations, combined with ancient Tibetan meditation techniques, defined Zoe Ann Nicholson's life for eleven years. Walking in the door in 1982 as a political feminist, demanding liberation for women, Zoe meets an American meditation master who turns her world upside down. Intimately written, Zoe's brilliant story-telling invites us inside of a controversial private Buddhist community where students learn to integrate the practicalities of modern Western life with the Eastern discipline of self-discovery in search of Enlightenment.
· An incredible journey, told with passion and rare honesty. Zoe's masterful writing makes it a page turner.
· Capturing the innocence, idealism and hunger for liberation that is at the core of all passionate seekers.
· A fascinating and intimate story of an American Buddhist Teacher and his aspiring, inspired student.
· A rare glimpse into the private, dynamic and formal teacher/student relationship.

The true story of a dedicated student who was asked to write about her teacher. It was her task, her gift, her very best, offered in love.
