Seeking Enchantment: A Spiritual Journey Of Healing From Oppression


Written prior to Manuel’s ordination as Zen priest, Seeking Enchantment, is a memoir of her inner journey from self-hatred to seeing her life as enchanted. It is a journey of transforming suffering and coming into a place of understanding life as a gift to be lived to its fullest.

She says, “Enchantment was an inner felt-sense of knowing myself–having an internal praiseworthy identity distinct from oppression’s distorted external one.”
