This collection of poems is a companion to the author's other books, Autobiography of a Zen Master, and Now And Zen. These poems explore life's most important issues, such as love, loss, self-awareness and acceptance.
How does Zen practice lead to enlightenment? When is internally-focused mindfulness most effective? What is the greatest obstacle to experiencing peace of mind? Now And Zen explores the deeper psychological aspects of Zen practice and offers a new approach for attaining tranquility and happiness. Robert Sommers has a Ph.D. in clinical psychology and is a long-time Zen practitioner.
