Rent Seeking Peace: Chronicles of the Worst Buddhist in the World
"An absorbing chronicle of discovery" from the life-changing #1 New York Times bestselling author of Reviving Ophelia.
After decades as a psychotherapist, Mary Pipher now turns her attention to herself, collecting insights from her own life to illuminate the importance of one's life journey-not just the destination. As a wife, mother, and therapist, Pipher sought to learn about the world and help others. But after the surprising success of Reviving Ophelia, she found herself overwhelmed by the demands on her time and attention. In 2002, she suffered a breakdown. Pipher realized that success and fame were harming her, and she needed a quieter, more meditative life that would carry her toward self-acceptance and joy. In Seeking Peace, she tells her own remarkable story, and in the process reveals truths about everyone's search for happiness and love.
