A None's Story

Corinna Nicolaou

Columbia University Press

On her drive back to Washington from LA, the author stops at the University of California at Berkeley, her old alma mater. It was here that the low-grade anxiety she suffered from as a child first burst through to full-blown panic, terrifying her. One by one, she visits all the Buddhist centers that surround campus and absorbs what they have to teach her. She comes to understand that with a Buddhist perspective, her difficult college years have a much more complicated source than she ever imagined. What she learns dismantles everything she thought she knew about why and who she was, leaving an explanation both more vast and straightforward than she believed possible.

Keywords:   Buddhism, Meditation, Karma, Berkeley, Panic, college
