Good Life: A Zen Precepts Retreat with Cheri Huber
If you are looking for the answers to life’s problems, you will not find them in this (or any) book. Yet every “answer” is right here, as close as your heart, your breathing, your touch, your sense of who you are.
Instead of a map showing how to avoid life’s difficulties so you can head straight for life’s treasures, this book offers a process that can serve as a compass to let you know when you are on or off course.
Here is a Zen perspective on the Buddhist precepts, the heart of a 2,500-year-old spiritual practice. This path has no answers and no end. The path itself is a way of being in the world, in which the only requirement is a questioning mind, and the only result is the very treasure that all of us, everywhere and always, have longed for.
Good Life includes engaging discussions of how to transform real-life difficulties into freedom. The precepts help us to see what keeps us from the natural joy of being wholeheartedly who we are.
