Product Details


“A truly surprising, brilliant, and wonderful book. Reading it, you suddenly see
that there is something greater that is before us, right here, right now. Les
Kaye and co-author Teresa Bouza reveal a different kind of mind (and heart)
in the midst of Silicon Valley and of our lives. This marvelous book is not only
about the search for balance but for meaning in the midst.”
—ROSHI JOAN HALIFAX, Upaya Zen Center, author of Standing at the Edge
“Zen meditation may call forth images of Japanese rock gardens and old
monasteries, but Les Kaye places it naturally in the midst of twenty-first-
century urban American life. Using interviews with individual practitioners
by Teresa Bouza, A Sense of Something Greater vividly illustrates how this
simple practice can offer remarkable clarity and ease to those who work
in competitive, high-tech, high-stress settings.”
—KAZUAKI TANAHASHI, Painting Peace at a Time of Global Crisis
“A warm, remarkably intimate introduction to a spiritual community in the
heart of Silicon Valley. Through personal interviews with the community’s
members, we meet the real people of the Valley, as they struggle to find their
bearings in the fast lane of the high tech world; through the wise counsel of
the community’s leader, Les Kaye, we are welcomed into the ancient tradition
of Soto Zen, where meditation is our most natural act and spiritual practice is
its own reward.”
—CARL BIELEFELDT, Associate Professor of Religious Studies, Stanford University
