Foreword By John Daido Loori, Roshi
If you're interested in experiencing Zen life firsthand- or are simply curious about what Zen is- this book is the ideal introduction. Through its detailed description of a typical week at Zen Mountain Monastery in Mt. Tremper, New York, you will get a better idea of what to expect when you visit any Zen monastery. Because the monastery is, in many respects, a microcosm of the larger community of Zen practitioners, this encounter also serves as an excellent preparation for what you're likely to find in other kinds of Zen centers or communities throughout North America Today.
"A useful directory of Zen monasteries, zendos and retreat centers fill out the book. Readers who would like to try a retreat at a Zen monastery, or simply want to experience it vicariously, will enjoy this helpful slice-of-life approach"
