One hundred days, one complete opportunity - to look at the way spiritual practice operates and life actually works. Robert Winson, poet and priest, and Miriam Sagan, poet and practitioner, spent a winter with their young daughter at a Zen Buddhist monastery in the mountains of Crestone, Colorado. While engaged there, each kept diaries and noted the events of their lives - neither compared their words. What resulted is a curious documentation via reflective analysis, rants, dreams, facts, marital strain, gossip, and honest exploration as to the dynamics of following the Dharma. Being aware can require us to come clean.
