AbstractThis book sheds light on Zen as a spiritual path that leads to healing - in the personal, social, and ecological dimensions of our being. If instead of fragmentation, disorientation, and vacuity, you seek wholeness, groundedness, and integrity in your life, then this book is written for you. Habito also addresses another set of questions, such as: can a Christian practice genuine Zen; how is Zen practice compatible with a Christian faith commitment?; to fully engage in a Zen practice, what kind of belief system is presupposed or required? How can spiritual practice in an Eastern tradition inform Christian life and understanding? He also shows how various Christian symbols, expressions, and practices can point to the transformative and healing perspectives and experiences provided by Zen.

"Healing Breath is a Christian Zen celebration of the healing power immediately available to us all." John P.Keenan.

"This is not merely another book about healing; it is a healing book." Brother David Steindl-Rast.

"I am grateful to Ruben Habito for sharing his cogent insight into the perennial, healing inspiration that rises now as Buddhist, now as Christian." Robert Aitken.
