Teaching Barefoot in Burma is tale of a less trodden path through an ancient and long isolated land. This a story is about living and teaching in a land like no other. Senior Fulbright Scholar, Robert Sterken, spent a year conducting research on Buddhism and politics, teaching, and learning about suffering and the dance of life among the most generous people on earth. His travel memoir paints an unusual, intimate, and unique personal picture of the Myanmar people, government, Buddhist monks, racism, political prisoners, students, struggles, festivals, education, hardship, and he reveals his personal struggles, insights, lessons, and joys.
