Zen Buddhism is a spiritual practice that influences not only how we view ourselves and one another, but also the aesthetic of our environment. Living Zen places the wisdom of Zen Buddhism in a modern, everyday context, showing how Zen can shape every aspect of lifestyle from home interiors to garden design. It explores Zen's role in nurturing creativity, and the way in which Zen's timeless, spiritual insights enhance the well-being of those who follow it. The stunning photographs embody the Zen experience, encouraging us to see beyond the surface, to have a deeper awareness of our environment's natural beauty. This is a book for anyone who wants to introduce simplicity, peace and calm into their lives and surroundings. The aesthetic of Living Zen is not about new possessions or interior design. Instead, the book invites us to open up to every moment, so that we arrive at our true nature and transform ordinary experiences into something special. The book demystifies the age-old Zen tradition and acts as a guide through a journey of self-discovery. It will inspire a way of being that brings joy and harmony to every aspect of our lives.
