About the author (2000)

Nancy O'Hara was drawn to Zen Buddhism in the mid-1980's after her father died, and found solace there in the profound stillness of silent meditation. After living in a Zen Monastery for six months in 1992, Nancy became even more dedicated to her practice and passionate about sharing with others the mindful approach to living that the monks had taught her and has been conducting meditation seminars and weekend retreats since 1994. Her first book, FIND A QUIET CORNER, was published in 1995 and became a National bestseller. In 1997, her second book, JUST LISTEN, was published to critical acclaim in hardcover, followed by the paperback edition in October 1998. Since 1996 Nancy has been working full timewriting and leading workshops, and has just completed her fourth book -- WORK : 7 STEPS TO LOVING WHAT YOU DO.
