Ordinary Wonder: Zen Life and Practice Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
“As you embrace the suffering of life, the wonder shows up at the same time. They go together.” - Charlotte Joko Beck
In this collection of never-before-published teachings by Charlotte Joko Beck, one of the most influential Western-born Zen teachers, she explores our “core beliefs” - the hidden, negative convictions we hold about ourselves that direct our thoughts and behavior and prevent us from experiencing life as it is. Wryly humorous and relatable, Beck uses powerfully clear language to show how our lives present us with daily opportunities to move from thinking to experiencing, from compulsivity to confidence, and from anguish to peace. Whether you are a Zen practitioner or just interested in exploring these teachings for the first time, Ordinary Wonder offers the depth and breadth of Beck’s remarkable experience in an accessible guide to practice amidst the struggles of daily life.
"For heaven’s sake, practice what Joko Beck recommends, what she spent 40 years doing and teaching: sitting silent and still, for long periods of time, experiencing everything that is happening in what you call your body, your thoughts, and your emotions. If you persist, you will find, as Joko did, an ease and a simple happiness in all that life presents you." - From the foreword by Jan Chozen Bays

I'm recommending it to all my friends - both Buddhist and not.
I related to her on more levels than I can articulate, and still do in this newest compilation of her teachings. Most importantly, she taught in a way that made sense to me, in a way that I could apply in my own life. She changed my thinking and thus helped me to shape a life that has been richer and richer with every passing year.
