The Zen of Small Things

Front Cover
Andrews McMeel Publishing, Mar 5, 2006 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 80 pages
Human beings are natural seekers. We want answers and meaning, and we expect to find both in 'big' things. Big possessions, big organizations, big beliefs. Inevitably, we find that big, external things become a heavy weight on the soul, driving us further from a truth that can only come from within.
In THE ZEN OF SMALL THINGS, Spiritual teacher Stephanie JT Russell elegantly explores Zen practice in the context of everyday life. She suggests that being and understanding are readily available through the small, humble things that surround us. 'This little book is an invitation to look closer', Russell writes in the introduction. 'To quiet down and find yourself reflected in the details of what is there, all around you. To savour one simple thing that might touch your day with grace, calm, and joy.'
Lavish photography by the author is thoughtfully paired with her words in this graceful and beautiful keepsake. Spiritual seekers and lovers of beauty and wisdom will cherish this book.
