This is a guidebook to recognizing and incorporating Zen thinking in everyday life.French invites readers to embrace a broad definition of Zen as mindfulness - extracting the most from a given moment - as opportunity to incorporate greater appreciation and fulfillment in everyday activities. Written, designed, and illustrated to enable Zen, this book encourages opportunities for mindfulness in commonplace human actions like breathing, speaking, waking, sleeping, moving, staying, eating, drinking, working, playing, caring, loving, thriving and surviving. French holds that, if we are mindful in our daily living, and thereby practice Zen, we can elevate the most fundamental activity to an art form and find a key to a more authentic and meaningful life.
