Alex is a generous, compassionate teacher and hearing the wise words of his newest book, The Zen Life, feels like having him next to you. His guidance is clear, concise, and exquisitely practical, in a way that is unusual for this material. His examples of the thoughts and behaviors that keep us down is so spot on that I felt like he had been looking over my shoulder. The parallels between the lessons at the monastery and the learnings as a householder speak to all those on the journey to awakening. And his suggested practices are the right combination of simple and powerful.

I strongly recommend using this book as a guide, referring to it often. The ‘voices in your head’ might not like it, but the rest of your life will improve.

Not what I expected

I expected more than anecdotes and stuff that I might be feeling. Disappointed with purchase.
