A Note From the Publisher
Finding Zen in the Ordinary is a rare encounter with the fruits of deep reflection and spiritual inquiry. In the immediacy, tenderness, and wisdom of his Zen stories and poems, Chris Keevil has captured the surprises, rewards, and challenges of a life committed to “just being with what is.” This book is a wonderfully fresh and clear-eyed sharing of life on and off the cushion, a companion for beginners and old practitioners alike.
