Please read at least 1/2 OR, if you are short on time, read section #50 from Lopez's Buddhist Scriptures "Nuns Triumph over Evil"-- not very related but Martine Batchelor elsewhere writes about women in Buddhism.
Everyone has negative habits — even the smallest ones can take control of us. Let Go is a much-needed guide to getting that control back. Martine Batchelor helps readers focus their minds and uncover the roots of their repetitive behaviors. For Batchelor, it's all about how we relate to our thoughts. By adopting the kind of "creative engagement" that she teaches in Let Go, readers can start to see real change, and recognize problems for what they really are: growth opportunities! Batchelor’s methods are applicable to all unwanted behavior — from the slightest undesirable recurring actions to more serious patterns of cruelty, self-abuse, and negativity. Each chapter concludes with Batchelor's expert guidance in exercises or meditations that helps readers begin to work with their harmful habits in a new, creative, and empowering way.
