This volume looks at the creative work of the great avant-gardist John Cage from an exciting interdisciplinary perspective, exploring his activities as a composer, performer, thinker, and artist. The essays in this collection grew out of a pivotal gathering during which a spectrum of participants including composers, music scholars, and visual artists, literary critics, poets, and filmmakers convened to examine Cage's extraordinary artistic legacy. Beginning with David Bernstein's introductory essay on the reception of Cage's music, the volume addresses topics ranging from Cage's reluctance to discuss his homosexuality, to his work as a performer and musician, and his forward-looking, provocative experimentation with electronic and other media. Several of the essays draw upon previously unseen sketches and other source materials. Also included are transcripts of lively panel discussions among some of Cage's former colleagues. Taken together, this collection is a much-needed contribution to the study of one of the most significant American artists of the twentieth century.

What does it mean to become and work as an artist today? What unique challenges do artists face in the twenty-first century, and what skills are required to overcome them? How might art become an expression of spiritual life? In addressing these and other questions, Deborah J. Haynes offers reflections that range from the practical to the deeply philosophical. She explores challenging ideas: impermanence, suffering, and the inevitability of death; the virtues of generosity, kindness, and compassion; and more abstract concepts such as negative capability, groundlessness, and wisdom. Individual chapters are framed by personal stories and images from the artist's work. Beginning Again: Reflections on Art as Spiritual Practice is a personal statement, born from the author's experience as an artist, writer, teacher, and Buddhist practitioner. Haynes writes for artists--and for all exploring the relationship of their creativity to the inner life. For Haynes, making and looking at art can be a form of meditation and prayer, a space for solitude, silence, and living in the present.

Though he lived in the thirteenth century, Meister Eckhart’s teachings were in many ways modern. His thinking was deeply ecumenical, encompassing Judaism, Buddhism, and Hinduism as well as shamanism and indigenous spirituality. He advocated for social, economic, and gender justice; taught about what we call ecology; and championed artistic creativity. All these elements have inspired Matthew Fox and influenced his Creation Spirituality. While Fox recognizes that Eckhart has influenced everyone from Teresa of Avila to Eckhart Tolle, Karl Marx to Carl Jung, and Annie Dillard to Anne Morrow Lindbergh, he also wants to introduce Eckhart to those activists addressing contemporary crises. Toward that end, and as he did in his Hildegard of Bingen, Fox creates metaphorical meetings between Eckhart and the Dalai Lama, Thomas Merton, Joanna Macy, Black Elk, Rumi, Adrienne Rich, and others. The result is wonderfully reader-friendly, profoundly substantive, and deeply inspiring.

A teacher of communication expresses his concern for thousands of students who are cheating themselves out of a worthwhile education by falling into the accepted role of "nonperson" uninvolved in the education process. In this book, the author fosters a belief that success or failure in college depends on communication—"interdependent efforts of people in a relationship to generate common meaning." He proposes to get students to realize that their education is something other students can help them develop, as much as teachers. The author uses a personal style of writing to talk with the students. He uses examples from the students' immediate campus environment in challenging them to question their roles in the educational process. Written for and tested in interpersonal communication courses, the book is also appropriate for teacher education courses, "orientation to college life" courses, and for college counseling centers.
