Reflect, meditate, and explore through a year of Zen journaling
Each day is a new empty space to bring to life―it can be loaded with stress or decorated with moments of calm and clarity. Embark on a wondrous journey through the self with this 52-week guided journal from Zen priest and teacher Bonnie Myotai Treace, sensei. Her wise, thought-provoking prompts will lead beginners and experienced practitioners alike through the seasons, filling the blank spaces with peaceful self-exploration and reflection every day.
Explore topics from the mundane to the holy with creative prompts like:
- Reverence―Zen artists tend to be very reverential toward the tools of their trade. Describe your pen, brush, musical instrument, etc., with the deep, precise attention that reflects that reverence.
- Being a Curious Being―What if you could become more curious and impartial toward your thoughts instead of being so easily persuaded by them? Write a few lines as you consider.
- Evening Threshold―Catch yourself at sundown, light fading from the sky. What does the arrival of night trigger or bring up for you?
