This site was created partly in conjunction with a class, "The Art of Peace," taught by me, Kimberley Snow, at the College of Creative Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara, Spring 2003, and partly in connection with my book, In Buddha's Kitchen, Shambhala Publications, 2003 and its companion website, www.snowlight.com. The narrator in the book, a chef in a retreat center, keeps trying to get out of the kitchen (and sometimes meditation sessions) by working on a website called QuietSpaces.com. The teacher eventually tells her that she has to create her own quiet space, there in the kitchen.
I am also the webmaster of the site so all technical problems should be reported to me as well as any feedback (which is welcomed) on the site and suggestions for links or additional material. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is my hope that peace will prevail, both in our hearts and in the world, and that this site will prove useful to someone, somewhere.
