Abstract:

A singular work of poetic prose exploring otherness and belonging-and what it means to be truly at home. Sanctuary: A Meditation on Home, Homelessness, and Belongingexamines the interface between inner and outer sanctuary, and the ways they affect one another. "Sanctuary" is the home we can return to when our lives are under threat, where we can face what's difficult to love, and have a place where we can truly say, "I am home"--And spiritual teachers often emphasize sanctuary's inner dimensions, that "our true home" is within. "Homelessness," in turn, can be viewed as a forced experience or one in which there is a spiritual void in being or feeling home. Drawing from her life as a Zen Buddhist priest whose ancestors labored as slaves in Louisiana, Zenju Earthlyn Manuel explores the tension between oppression-based on race, religion, ability, class, orientation, gender, and other "ghosts of slavery"-and finding home within our own hearts. Through intimate personal stories and deep reflection, Manuel helps us see the moment when what has gone unacknowledged surfaces is "the time we have been practicing for," the epiphany when we can investigate the true source what has been troubling us. This insightful book about home and homelessness, sanctuary and refuge offers inspiration, encouragement, and a clear-eyed view of cultivating a spiritual path in challenging times.
