In The Way of Tenderness, Zenju Earthlyn Manuel brings Buddhist philosophies of emptiness and appearance to bear on race, sexuality, and gender, using wisdom forged through personal experience and practice to rethink problems of identity and privilege.

Manuel brings her hard-won insights as a lesbian black woman into conversation to reveal that dry wisdom alone is not sufficient to heal the wounds of the marginalized; an effective spiritual practice must embrace the tenderness found where conventional reality and emptiness intersect. Only warmth and compassion can cure hatred and heal the damage it wreaks within us.
