Synopsis: Shambhala sale edition. A practical guide to actually bringing the teachings of Zen into our everyday lives, including how to develop clarity and equanimity amid the stress and turmoil of it all using techniques adapted from the Zen tradition.
"If you want to wake up, not just talk about it, this clear, inspiring book provides the practical guidance we all need. Many excellent books describe very well the human predicament...very few of them are helpful in making clear what is involved in developing a genuinely useful practice. To say `Just let it go` is like telling an exhausted drowning person to `Just swim to shore`...even though all reading is preliminary, it is often a crucial first step. Both for beginning students and longtime practitioners, this book will clarify the muddy waters." Charlotte Joko Beck.
