The Universe for Breakfast chronicles a journey of transformation in verse. Joy Magezis has been ordained as a member of the Core Community of the Order of Interbeing, established by Zen Master, Thich Nhat Hanh. She was part of his official delegation to Vietnam, when Thich Nhat Hanh returned after 39 years of exile. A series of poems about the trip appear in this collection, as well as poems about her experiences practicing with the Sangha community in Britain and in Plum Village. Joy is an Usui Reiki Master and a UK Reiki Federation Master Teacher Member. She documents her experiences learning, using and teaching Reiki through a number of poems in this book. An international author and college lecturer, Joy's classic Women's Studies text has been translated into various languages including Russian and Chinese. Her novels have been published in both English and German
