The Rainman's Third Cure
An Irregular EducationBook - 2015
The guiding metaphor in Coyote's new spiritual biography is drawn from a line in an early Bob Dylan song, and has become the tale of a young man caught between apparently antipodal options and the journey that leads to wealth and power. Coyote provides readers intimate portraits of mentors that shaped him, as what begins as a peripatetic flirtation with Zen deepens into a life-long avocation, ordination as a priest, and finally the road to Transmission-- acknowledgment from his teacher that he is ready to be an independent teacher.
