A Woman’s Guide to Buddhism. About Opening the Lotus. Part primer, part personal history, part guide to spiritual practice, this book opens the door to an understanding of Buddhist spirituality, which engages more and more Westerners as the millennium approaches. Through personal anecdotes, lively explanations, and thoughtful discussions, Sandy Boucher presents a female perspective on fundamental Buddhist teachings such as compassion, detachment, and enlightenment.

Opening the Lotus: A Woman’s Guide to Buddhism. Eleven years later, Boucher returns with Opening the Lotus a gentler and humbler work addressed to beginners rather than committed sangha members; and to women, rather than both sexes. By Kate Lila Wheeler. This book is a sadder and wiser one. At the very end, Boucher discloses a bout with cancer. Her tone is quiet, patient, trustworthy, acknowledging difficulties rather than crusading against them.

I love this book. Very inspiring step on the spiritual journey. Often women struggle when trying to find a place within a traditional religion, and women exploring Buddhism can come up against these same gender issues (surprising, but true). Opening the lotus gives a woman firm footing upon which to base further exploration of Buddhism along with some very inspirational moments related by the author and several tangible additions to your practice. Wonderful informative volume for women looking for a place in Buddhism or who feel called to explore Buddhism. Lots of good information for beginners.

The book itself was in great shape. Pages crisp and not worn. Some minor staining on edges. Have not read/reviewed it thoroughly yet but otherwise happy with the product.

There were many pages in the middle of the book that had no print on them. I think I would not purchase this book at any price if I knew that it was incomplete.

I think the seller should say that pages were blank.

When I began studying Buddhism, I found myself wondering how my feminist philosophies would fit into the Buddhist view. This book was a great help in exploring Buddhism as it relates to women, written in an almost conversational tone by Sandy Boucher, who has been practicing for over 20 years.

This is not a definitive book, but one very helpful in introducing Buddhism to women. It's an excellent read, and comforting in its own way. I'm on my second read through, and still think this is one of my favorite books on Buddhism.

The organization and style of this book are good as are some of the suggestions. As the title says, it is a woman's guide to Buddhism, but I'm not sure why the author feels it necessary to identify herself (only within the book itself, not on the jacket summary) as a lesbian. Here is one quote: "I share my erotic and domestic life with women." I don't understand what this has to do with the rest of the book or with Buddhism.
