Publisher's Summary

Beyond the meditation cushion, where do you ultimately find the profound clarity, presence, and simple joy of Zen? "Where it has always been - in everyday life," teaches Charlotte Joko Beck, "whether it's raising our kids, working in the office, or even cleaning the house." On Living Everyday Zen, this seminal voice in American Zen shares some of her hallmark teachings and insights from nearly 50 years of practice. Beck's ability to make the abstract concrete and accessible for anyone who engages in the practice distinguishes her from most other Zen teachers.

Everyday Zen

Beck was one of the best Zen teachers in American Zen and is known for not playing into the whole Zen Master scam. Easy to listen to. Human. Actually enlightened. And probably the antidote for most of the Buji Zen fluff and poseur teachers who preen their self images endlessly.

Really, their are no frills here, despite the bits of shakuhachi intermezzos...just a boring old Zen practice talk about living mindfully and failing constantly.

A remarkable lady

though she is now gone she will never be forgotten. this recording of her Dharma talks illustrates the remarkable teacher she was. these talks really give an insight to how she views the world. I am so thankful to have found them.

Very Practicable

These are Zen teachings that fit North American culture given in a Western voice. One feels that one is listening within this intimate group of practitioners.

This is not the Zen you are looking for…

Heed the warning given in the first few minutes of the recording that the speaker will ramble. Ramble she does, but so slowly that listening at x1.5 speed sounds normal. The first "chapter" of these lecture recordings was more than enough time wasted for this listener.
