AbstractThe notion of spending days at a time in silence and meditation amid the serene beauty of a Zen monastery may be
appealing—but how do you do it, and what can you really expect from the experience?
Waking Up provides the answers. Jack Maguire takes us inside the monastery walls to present details of what it’s like. A
detailed “Guide to Zen and Buddhist Places” and a glossary of terms make Waking Up not only a handbook for the curious
seeker, but an excellent resource for anyone wanting to know more about the Buddhist way.
