Cravings: A Zen-inspired memoir about sensual pleasures…
Could some impossible-to-imagine link between infidelity, a blue movie, vegetables and Paris, France, sprout a seed of liberation? And what about Maslow and that “Aha” moment on a waterbed in a Mormon home in Pocatello, Idaho, where the author slept, or more aptly did not sleep, during a Greyhound bus journey stopover?
In Cravings: A Zen-inspired memoir about sensual pleasures, freedom from dark places, and living and eating with abandon, long-time journalist and life coach Wanda Hennig (see her US Amazon author page here) draws on her writing, psychology, life coaching and Zen background to create a great read for both men and the book’s primary market: women.
Bonobos, a curious LSD miscreant, good eating, an eclectic Toastmasters group, hospice training, Zen meditation, depression, social phobia, orgasmic meditation, tears — and laughter — all come into play in this insightful gem of a memoir: writer, editor, foodie and adventurer Wanda Hennig’s first.
An inveterate traveler and long-time travel writer (for some years now with a culinary travel focus), the author finds liberation strikes in unlikely places — if you’re open to it.
Many of the insights shared in this memoir-cum-self-help were gained while traveling and so we drop in on South Africa, San Francisco and Oakland, Poland, Paris (France), Pocatello (Idaho), Salt Lake City and elsewhere. This book is, however, first and foremost, a sex-positive “original, fun, real, sensitive, smart” and entertaining inner journey.
