Product Details


“I can’t think of a more qualified and appropriate person to take on the task of developing a contemporary technique for using mindfulness as a path of self-discovery and peace.”—from the foreword by Roshi Pat Enkyo O’Hara

“An in-depth read for a new way of thinking—this book is a great contribution to American Buddhism.”—Norman Oberstein, CEO, Frederick P. Lenz Foundation for American Buddhism
“A practical workbook blending modern psychology with ancient wisdom, Zen Beyond Mindfulness leaves a breadcrumb trail to awakening. Dr. Harris clearly has a love affair with truth and the potentiality of human individual evolution. Enlightenment can bang on his door at 3 a.m. and he will always get up and make time.”—Dr. Conrad Fischer, MD, Program Director, Brookdale Hospital Medical Center
“Buddhism has a history of adapting to the culture of a country where it is introduced. In the West, that adaptation includes the merging of modern psychology with traditional Buddhism. In Zen beyond Mindfulness, Shuzen Harris makes a significant contribution to this dialogue.  Shuzen tackles difficult Buddhist subjects with a clarity and writing style that renders them accessible to the reader. He then fuses those subjects with the psychology of I-systems to help students of Zen to dissolve emotional and psychological barriers to deepening their meditation practice. Due to his many years of direct experience, Shuzen brings a profound understanding to both Zen and psychology that makes this book particularly relevant and beneficial.”—Gerry Shishin Wick, author of The Book of Equanimity: Illuminating Classic Zen Koans
Zen beyond Mindfulness will enable both new and seasoned practitioners to gain a better understanding of how the mind works. A compelling teaching guide imbued with boundless wisdom and clarity, this book is a twenty-first-century teaching that will stand the test of time!”—Heila and Rodney Downey, Guiding Teacher and Abbot of the Dharma Center, Cape Town, South Africa

“A refreshing alternative to the profusion of mindfulness literature.”—Publishers Weekly
