Natalie Goldberg – The Great Spring @ McIntyre's Books
Mar 9 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

From beloved writing teacher and author of the best-selling, “Writing Down the Bones”, a treasury of personal stories reflecting a life filled with journeys inner and outer zigzagging around the world and home again.
Here, Natalie Goldberg, “a writer both energized and enlightened” (Julia Cameron), shares those vivid moments that have wakened her to new ways of being. We follow alongside her mapless meanderings in the New Mexican desert and her pilgrimages to Bob Dylan’s birthplace and to Larry McMurtry’s dusty Texas ghost town of rare books. We feel her deep hunger while she sits zazen in a monastery in Japan, and her profound loss when she hears of the passing of a dear friend while teaching in the French countryside.
Through it all, she remains grounded in a life informed by two constants: the practices of writing and of Zen. With humor and insight, Natalie encircles around the essential questions and paths that compel her toward: Where does this life lead? Who are we?
This is a book to be relished one awakening at a time. Each story is a reminder that no matter how hard the situation or desolate you may feel, spring will come again, breaking through a cold winter, bringing early yellow forsythia flowers. And the Great Spring of enlightenment that sudden rush of acceptance, pain cracking open, obstructions shattering will also burst forth.
Natalie Goldberg is the author of fourteen books, including “Writing Down the Bones”, which has changed the way writing is taught in this country. She teaches retreats nationally and internationally. She lives in New Mexico.
