A Reader Review
one man's journey from muscle working to zen energy healing, September 14, 2001
Reviewer: dradick (see more about me at Amazon.com) from Atlanta, GA USA
The author presents his life story of beginning work on massage and muscle work, to his learning Rolfing and Feldenkrais, to his work with a Zen Kendo (and healer) master. Along the way, you are treated with fantastic stories of transformation and healing, all presented in a matter-of-fact way, without ornamentation or (much) philosophy. Rather than trying to proselytize or show why "his way" is the "best way", the author tells a tale of his personal transformation and growth and the potential inside us all. Highly recommended.

A Reader Review
Zen training Tutor, December 3, 2000
Reviewer: Michael Ramos (see more about me at Amazon.com) from Melbourne, FL USA
Introduction to Zen Training, Sanzen Nyumon is one of the few books to address the many questions that naturally arise as one begins to train. Questions range from the elementary of how long one should sit at a time to the more intensive of how to maintain concentration when not sitting. Omori Rotatishi was best able to convey his points by drawing upon his vigorous training as a martial artist of the samurai era and his scholarship in both Chinese and Japanese bringing to life the many traditional Zen teaching stories.

The book provides an introduction to the physical nature of training, discussing ones state of mind, the physiology, breath, posture, pain, and drowsiness. Training is placed in a context which gives sitting meditation depth and breadth. Sanzen Nyumon discusses the rationale for zazen, the foundation of Zen training. Zazen, while seemingly a simple activity, is not just "quiet sitting" and its value remains in fully understanding the subtleties of the activity. The book also provides instructions on how to sit zazen, and how to adjust one's breath, posture and mental state. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover
A potent source of inspiration for anyone interested in the therapeutic potential of Buddhism. David Brazier writes with clarity and authority about the Zen way."—Mark Epstein, M.D. author of Thoughts Without a Thinker: Psychotherapy from a Buddhist Perspective.

"Comprehensive and readable . . . should appeal to anyone broadly interested in Buddhism."—Helen Sieroda psychosynthesis psychotherapist.

In this book, psychotherapist David Brazier offers readers in the West a fresh perspective on Buddhist psychology and demonstrates how Zen Buddhist techniques are integrated into psychotherapy. Writing from the viewpoint of a Western psychotherapist, Dr. Brazier successfully demystifies Buddhist psychology, explains the conceptual foundations of Buddhist thought, and with the help of vivid case studies, clearly demonstrates how a Buddhist approach can provide a practical path to personal growth.
