Zen to Reveal the Extraordinary Tao
*An introductory Q&A with the author can be found on this page.
Zen to Reveal the Extraordinary Tao offers an accessible and hands-on guide to how we can use the insights of Zen Buddhism and Taoism to inform and enrich our daily lives.
In a search to know something more than our ‘I-self’, psychologist Trevor Rufli describes how the ‘knowing’ that came to him in his own journey ‘turned everything on its head’ and set everything in the opposite direction to where he had been looking:
The really wonderful thing about this knowing is that it is not something we need to come to know through acquiring knowledge, becoming religious, doing spiritual stuff, making an effort or doing anything in particular. You don’t have to believe anything either. Rather this knowing is acquired through a process of understanding that is a process of letting go rather than accruing.
Trevor draws on the knowledge and experience of the giants of Zen Buddhism and Taoism to clarify paradoxical matters such as: non-doing versus doing nothing, self and non-self, desire and fulfilment, and the potential pitfalls of specific spiritual practices.
Whether you are an experienced spiritual seeker, or engaged in self-exploration for the first time, Zen to Reveal the Extraordinary Tao is a uniquely experiential guide.
