Dainin Katagiri (1928?1990) was a central figure in the transmission of Zen in America. His first book, Returning to Silence, emphasized the need to return to our original, enlightened state of being, and became one of the classics of Zen in America. In You Have to Say Something, selections from his talks have been collected to address another key theme of Katagiri's teaching: that of bringing Zen insight to bear on our everyday experience. "To live life fully," Katagiri says, "means to take care of your life day by day, moment to moment, right here, right now." To do this, he teaches, we must plunge into our life completely, bringing to it the same wholeheartedness that is required in Zen meditation. When we approach life in this way, every activity—everything we do, everything we say—becomes an opportunity for manifesting our own innate wisdom. With extraordinary freshness and immediacy, Katagiri shows the reader how this wisdom not only enlivens our spiritual practice but can help make our life a rich, seamless whole.

What, other than numbers and power, justifies Canada’s assertion of sovereignty and jurisdiction over the country’s vast territory? Why should Canada’s original inhabitants have to ask for rights to what was their land when non-Aboriginal people first arrived? The question lurks behind every court judgment on Indigenous rights, every demand that treaty obligations be fulfilled, and every land-claims negotiation. Addressing these questions has occupied anthropologist Michael Asch for nearly thirty years. In On Being Here to Stay, Asch retells the story of Canada with a focus on the relationship between First Nations and settlers. Asch proposes a way forward based on respecting the “spirit and intent” of treaties negotiated at the time of Confederation, through which, he argues, First Nations and settlers can establish an ethical way for both communities to be here to stay.

Something has been lost since the myth and legend has been hijacked by the mainstream media. The storytellers of old have been replaced by corporations who assimilate everything into fantasy. This could be nothing further from the truth. Through story, most if not all cultures pass on from generation to generation stories pertaining to how we interact with nature and others through the highest of morals and respect. With the vilification of this, it is up to the elders of cultures to make sure these stories infiltrate into the collective heart of our children, guiding them and allowing them to make their way through life with integrity. As we enter the twenty-first century, our children's future is in peril, with an oversexualised media and mass marketing for all the wrong reasons. This book of stories follows the life of a young girl whose imagination is healthy and very active, of her interaction with nature and the nature spirits, to raising children of her own and passing on sacred information to her siblings.
