This inspiring book tells the story of a former Fortune 500 executive who spent his whole life striving for success before realizing that he needed to slow down and take a breath. After two divorces and his mother's sudden death, he reevaluated his priorities and began a spiritual journey that led him to study with Shaolin monks and other masters. In... And I Breathed, he shares his unique story, including behind-the-scenes tales from his career in concert promotion and his studies with spiritual leaders.

Calificación de Goodreads
“In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s there are few.” So begins this most beloved of all American Zen books. Seldom has such a small handful of words provided a teaching as rich as has this famous opening line. In a single stroke, the simple sentence cuts through the pervasive tendency students have of getting so close to Zen as to completely miss what it’s all about. An instant teaching on the first page. And that’s just the beginning. In the forty years since its original publication, Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind has become one of the great modern Zen classics, much beloved, much reread, and much recommended as the best first book to read on Zen. Suzuki Roshi presents the basics—from the details of posture and breathing in zazen to the perception of nonduality—in a way that is not only remarkably clear, but that also resonates with the joy of insight from the first to the last page. It’s a book to come back to time and time again as an inspiration to practice, and it is now available to a new generation of seekers in this fortieth anniversary edition, with a new afterword by Shunryu Suzuki’s biographer, David Chadwick.
