Lions Roar : November 2017
A WAY OF LIFE Zen Monastics At Work And Play By Paul Davis Parallax Press, 2017; 160 pp. $26.74 (cloth) In this book by author and photog- rapher Paul Davis, we see Buddhist monks and nuns from the Plum Village tradition around the world, of all ages, at work and play. Following an introductory essay by Davis, a student of Thich Nhat Hanh’s since 1990, it offers a series of beautiful candid shots of monastics in gardens, kitchens, and unexpected locations. The visuals are punctuated with quota- tions from Thich Nhat Hanh, such as, “May our heart’s garden of awakening bloom with hundreds of flowers.” Davis, whose work is often featured in Lion’s Roar, says that though he has seen great sadness in the monks and nuns he’s photographed, he has also seen great joy, even during work. “It is the joy that has been, and continues to be, the focus of my photographic journey,” he writes. MINDFULNESS ON THE GO CARDS 52 Simple Meditation Practices You Can Do Anywhere Jan Chozen Bays Shambhala Publications, $15.95 (boxed card set) Zen teacher Jan Chozen Bays writes that mindfulness practice doesn’t require a quiet room and a meditation cushion. In fact, it can be practiced pretty much any place at any time. These 52 cards contain easy-to-follow instructions for simple practices, like walking silly, using your non-dominant hand, smiling, going on a media fast, paying attention to the sensations of hot and cold, and contemplating a raisin. “Become aware of the movement of the air, both in obvious forms, such as wind, and in subtler forms, such as the breath,” she writes on one card titled “The Wind.” Each card also includes observations about insights that could come from the practice, as well as short inspiring maxims meant to help the practice unfold. ♦ LION’S ROAR | NOVEMBER 2017 77
