Read full description of the books:Donna Quesada had been teaching for about a dozen years when the first signs of burnout hit her. Rather than give into her frustration, she reached for BuddhaOCOs teachingsOCothe Zen wisdom that formed the basis of her own longtime spiritual practice. She survived the semester and gradually rediscovered the joy of teaching that had been progressively declining. In this wonderful book, she shares the lessons she learnedOColessons that reveal time and again: No matter the situation, itOCOs always about getting your head in the right place first. Resolution begins in our own minds. Some days, some semesters, and even some years will be more challenging and more wearisome than others, she warns. But in "Buddha in the Classroom," Quesada offers a lasting source of encouragement and inspiration. Although the book draws from Eastern teachings, the wisdom is for everyone, regardless of personal background, creed, or faith.
With elements of "The Last Lecture" as well as "Chicken Soup for the TeacherOCOs Soul," this is the perfect gift for teachersOCobut also for anyone needing inspiration."
Read information about the authorI teach an unconventional eastern philosophy class to large groups at Santa Monica College, where my students and I "tune-in" before lecture. We stop, we greet the day, we breathe, we meditate and we listen to the delicious music, if only for a few minutes, or so.
I believe that as teachers, we teach just as much through our presence and our way of being, as through our words. I believe we are in a unique position to uplift others and I also believe we are all teachers in some way.
I am also honored to be able to call myself a teacher of Kundalini Yoga. I teach in my own studio, as well as in the eminent Yoga West. I have an affinity for all spiritual practices and wisdom teachings and have received training in the Zen tradition. I live with my family in the heart of cinema land, Culver City, CA, where you'll likely find me walking my beloved little terrier, Marcel.
