Drawing on centuries of wisdom, renowned Zen Buddhist priest Shunmyo Masuno applies the essence of Zen to modern life in clear, practical, easily adopted lessons - one a day for 100 days.

  • Lining up your shoes after you take them off can bring order to your life.
  • Putting down your fork after every bite can help you feel more grateful for what you have.
  • Spending time barefoot can strengthen your body.
  • Planting a flower and watching it grow can teach you to embrace change.
  • Going outside to watch the sunset can make every day feel celebratory.

With each task, you will open yourself up to a renewed sense of peace and inner calm.
