The Heart of Zen
The Heart of Zen (North Atlantic Books, 2014) is a dialog between Zen master Junpo Denis Kelly Roshi and Keith Martin-Smith.
While we are more and more familiar with popular ideas of enlightenment and spiritual awakening, life still comes at us full force, and hope can turn to frustration as the gulf between our spiritual belief and our everyday life seems to loom ever larger. Through spirited Q&A sessions with Zen master Jun Po Denis Kelly Roshi, The Heart of Zen takes a gradual, step-by-step approach to what has become a vexing problem in spiritual circles.
