Bamboo Forest Print


In the panoramic "Bamboo Forest, Sagano, Kyoto, Japan," good fortune is represented in a grove of green lucky bamboo canes. The bamboo's sinuous lines, adorned with bands like delicate bracelets, emanate both weightlessness and strength. The intensity of the image's oversized dimensions and strong color can dramatize a large wall or powerfully balance large furniture.

      The first two books on your list, "Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind" and "Not Always So," are my favorite zen books. I've read them over and over and over....

      I work mostly in the business arena coaching leaders, many of whom are stressed out.

      I find Zen a really useful way to teach them meditation for stress management.
