About the book: 
Slow down, relax and find happiness.
Let Japanese Monk and chief priest of the Soto Zen temple give you refuge from the chaotic world.
Drawing on centuries of wisdom, renowned Zen Buddhist priest Shunmyo Masuno applies the essence of Zen to modern life in clear, practical, easily adopted lessons--one a day for 100 days. Discover the secrets to a calmer, more joyful life:
  • Understand uchimizu: conveying your true intentions without asserting them
  • Welcome a Zen mindset into your life and your home
  • Immerse yourself in zazen, and sweep the clutter from your mind
  • Create gateways between the different aspects of your life
In Zen: The Art of Simple Living,  you will learn to find happiness not by seeking out extraordinary experiences but by making small changes--to what you do, how you think, how you interact with others, and how you appreciate the present moment. With each task, you will open yourself up to a renewed sense of peace, inner calm and joy.
