What is Zazen?

Part of Zenguide.com's guide to meditation:
"'Zen' is not simply a device for centering and calming the mind but also embracing the wisdom of enlightenment."

An Artist Empowered / Dharma

I would like to introduce you to my latest book: An Artist Empowered: Define and Establish Your Value as an Artist—Now.

The main themes include the importance of dharma and Zen Buddhism to the arts; and after all, great art is born of non-attachment. Understanding is where you find it.

Dogma, as we come to learn, can creep into the most pure of understandings. Tradition can be good; mindless tradition isn't.

A recent endorsement:

"An Artist Empowered is an intriguing book that uses real-life anecdotes,thought-provoking reflections, and humorous insights to explore how to create and lead a life worth living. The powerful and timeless principles make this an evocative page-turner. Read it and reap."
