Overview

Cravings: A Zen-inspired memoir about sensual pleasures, freedom from dark places, and living and eating with abandon by Wanda Hennig

Did some link between infidelity, a blue movie, vegetables and Paris, France, sprout the seed of liberation? Or was it that ‘Aha’ moment on the waterbed in Pocatello? In Cravings, long-time journalist and life coach Wanda Hennig writes—wisely, hilariously and sometimes poignantly—about sex and food; living for three-and-a-half years at the San Francisco Zen Center; moving solo from one continent to another; overcoming depression and social phobia. Also meditation, celibacy, creative mindfulness strategies and more. Mouth Orgasm edition.
