WHEN NOTHING IS SPECIAL, EVERYTHING CAN BE
The best-selling author of 'Everyday Zen' shows how to awaken to daily life and discover the ideal in the everyday, finding riches in our feelings, relationships, and work. 'Nothing Special' offers the rare and delightful experience of learning in the authentic Buddhist tradition with a wonderfully contemporary Western master.
"A splendid tour of the uncompromising and uncompromised teachings of Zen…Beck's lively texts lead the reader to the special 'no thing' of Zen tradition".
"Deep wisdom; strong, clear, practical advice- wonderful common sense Zen".
JACK KORNFIELD, author of 'A Path with Heart'
"Joko Beck speaks from the timeless and the perennial, so her metaphors of ordinary things and everyday incidents illumine my mundane life. 'Nothing Special' is Zen alive and how to live it".
ROBERT AITKEN, author of 'Taking the Path of Zen'
