This audio course with Beck includes the voices of some of her students, but mostly you'll hear Beck herself, imperfect and unadorned, offering thoughts on everyday Zen. Beck's insights are voiced in down-to-earth, practical phrases that explain how a Zen approach is useful in daily life--particularly in those irritating encounters we're all bound to endure, from traffic to difficult people. Beck says she'll discuss a "hodgepodge" of things that may not always hold together, but the collective effect of her thoughts is refreshingly clear. Practice IS hard, she says, and we don't always succeed. But being aware of our distractions and failures moves us closer to living gracefully in the moment, free of the past and future, here and now, satisfied, and fully alive.
