    A Gathering of "Wild and Wise" Women Paid Member

    Spirit Rock Meditation Center hosted its fourth annual "Wild and Wise" Buddhist women's weekend gathering, September 25-26. Located in the rural hills of California, the retreat was led by Tsultlim Allione, author of Women of Wisdom; China Galland, author of The Bond Among Women; eco-philosophcr and Buddhist activist Joanna Macy; and Deena Metzer, a Bay Arca poet whose latest book is Looking For the Faces of God. Proceeds went to Tara Mandala, the Buddhist retreat center in southwest Colorado, which Ms. Allione founded and now directs.
