In Sailing Home, renowned Zen teacher Norman Fischer deftly incorporates Buddhist, Judaic, Christian, and popular thought, as well as his own unique and sympathetic understanding of life, in his reinterpretation of Odysseus's familiar wanderings as lessons that everyone can use. We see how to resist the seduction of the Sirens' song to stop sailing and give up; how to bide our time in a situation and wait for the right opportunity; and how to reassess our story and rediscover our purpose and identity if, like the Lotus-Eaters, we have forgotten the past. With meditations that yield personal revelations, illuminating anecdotes from Fischer's and his students' lives, and stories from many wisdom traditions, Sailing Home shows the way to greater purpose in your own life.

Norman Fischer is a poet, author, Zen priest, and abbot. Founder and teacher of the Everyday Zen Foundation (www.everydayzen.org), he is one of the senior Zen teachers in America. In addition to his own retreats and events, which take place in his groups in Canada and Mexico, as well as the United States, Norman teaches at many other meditation centers around the world.
