Zen Coffee has arrived in the present.
The birth of a book is always a very special thing to me, not just because I wrote it, but because part of me--part of my heart and soul--is in the pages.
I promised I'd answer the koan of meditating by coffee. The nature of how you experience Zen and coffee is unique
to each person. There is no right or wrong answer because the koan is whatever it means to you. The koan can't be explained with words; it must be experienced on an intuitive, feeling level inside you. That's what Zen Coffee is all about.
The paradox of meditating by coffee is that mindfully meditating is
not separate from any of your experiences; it is a basic, integral part
of everything in your life and can be incorporated into every thought, feeling, and experience you have, much in the same manner that caffeine and calm--which are seeming opposites--poured into the
same coffee cup are a perfect blend of meditation and mindfulness.
Everyone who left comments on the koan receives a free copy of the book! Please email me with your address so I can send the books out.
