Rate this:
"Using a series of "real-life koans" - modern stories that mirror traditional Zen parables - Perle Besserman shows how Zen techniques can help us resolve problems in our personal relationships, enhance our work lives, and find new dimensions of physical and emotional well-being. A leading American Zen writer and practitioner, she blends spirituality and practicality as she shows how an understanding that everything just is can free us from empty myths and unlock the wonder in our everyday lives. "Call it enlightenment, liberation, or a transformation in consciousness," she writes. "It takes a full turn in the way we experience the world, a complete closing of the gap between self and other and total trust in this very moment.""--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
