Ikebana and tea, karate and calligraphy -- all traditional Japanese arts and ways share certain ideals and practices to achieve the same goal: greater serenity, concentration, and mind/body harmony. With practical examples and easy-to-follow exercises, this book concisely introduces 45 living concepts of the Way, from "wabi" and the "immovable mind" to "respect" and "duty," explaining their traditional Japanese roots and also how to incorporate them into our daily lives and personal value systems. An excellent primer to Eastern art, philosophy, and spiritual practice.


Living the Japanese Arts and Ways: 45 Paths to Meditation and Beauty is out of print, but the book in its entirety appears in the anthology The Japanese Way of the Artist.
