Practical Zen for Health, Wealth and Happiness

Jessica Kingsley Publishers, Singing Dragon

Zen master Julian Daizan Skinner brings the body-mind insights of Rinzai Zen from the mountains of Japan to the Western world by presenting simple meditation techniques that can help you achieve health, wellbeing, and success. After taking the reader through the first 100 days of practice, the book then shows how to adapt the new learned techniques to the rest of your life. In addition, case studies at the end of each chapter show how people’s lives have been transformed through their meditation journeys. This is an accessible and practical guide to adapting Eastern meditation into busy Western lives.

Julian Daizan Skinner began full-time monastic Zen in 1989. He has practiced and received Dharma transmission in the Soto and Rinzai traditions and been named successor of Zen Master Miyamae Shinzan, founder of The Zendo Kyodan Lineage. For more information, visit
