Managing Softly

By Bertrand Jouvenot,

Book cover of Managing Softly

What is my book about?

Looking at the history of the world, the violence principle emerges as a key driver. It’s all the same in the economic world: companies run to win market shares, employees jockey to gain better positions, CEO struggle to convince Wall Street that their strategic orientations are the best, and so on. But a closer look at the history of the world reveals three exceptional men who have been involved in immense battles and have been winning amazing victories using the Non-Violence Principle. The purpose of the book is to draw the lesson from those three exceptional men and to establish Non-Violence Principle as a key success factor for tomorrow’s management.

Siddhartha

By Hermann Hesse,

Book cover of Siddhartha

Herman Hesse’s Indian tale follows the ancient journey of Siddhartha, a fictional character on a spiritual path to find meaning in a world full of suffering and greed by renouncing his family and all worldly possessions to become a wandering holy man (Samana).

Along his journey he discovers and meets the actual Buddha (Gautama Buddha), and although he was deeply impressed with the Buddha’s honorable teachings, Siddhartha, disappointed, chose instead to follow his own path believing that one cannot find enlightenment by only following the words of a teacher but instead by experiencing and embracing all aspects of life personally to understand the true nature of enlightenment.

The story itself is captivating because the answers Siddhartha seeks are questions we’ve all asked ourselves, and the answers he discovers help explore the contradictions between the sacred texts of organized religion and the frustrated individual’s approach to find meaning within themselves despite…

What is this book about?

Here the spirituality of the East and the West have met in a novel that enfigures deep human wisdom with a rich and colorful imagination.

Written in a prose of almost biblical simplicity and beauty, it is the story of a soul's long quest in search of he ultimate answer to the enigma of man's role on this earth. As a youth, the young Indian Siddhartha meets the Buddha but cannot be content with a disciple's role: he must work out his own destiny and solve his own doubt-a tortuous road that carries him through the sensuality of a love…

Traveling Purposefully Towards a Vague Destination

By David J.B. Eisenbraun,

Book cover of Traveling Purposefully Towards a Vague Destination

What is my book about?

Jesse is a young American sailor who experiences a tragic and life-changing spiritual event during a perilous return home. Following a chance encounter with a mysterious Russian journalist, his quest for inner peace takes a sharp turn as he descends into crippling alcoholism and increasingly reckless behaviors that inevitably lead him on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. From bartending in the gulf of Thailand, to interactions with tribal aborigines in the ancient jungles of Malaysia, to soul-fulfilling romances on the unique islands of Bali and Indonesia, and ultimately, an epic motorcycle expedition and dangerous journey through largely unknown locales seething with tense political strife in the high Himalayas of Northern India, Nepal, and across the Indian subcontinent to the unforgiving dry landscapes of the infamous Thar Desert during a historical heatwave.

Shapers of Japanese Buddhism

By Yusen Kashiwahara, Koyu Sonoda,

Book cover of Shapers of Japanese Buddhism

This book includes twenty full and seventy-five brief biographies of significant figures in the history of Japanese Buddhism, some of them orthodox, many of them eccentric, each contributing some unique genius to the living tradition from the sixth century up to modern times. An excellent way to enter the spirit of the tradition with many stories to enjoy.

What is this book about?

More than thirteen centuries of clergy, laity, and social conditions interacted to mold Japan's Buddhism. Today's resulting characteristics, which distinguish it from its mainland sources, include a proliferation of independent sects, emphasis on religion for lay members, and de-emphasis of clerical codes. The twenty main biographies and seventy-five sketches presented in this book reveal both the individual and social aspects of Buddhist evolution and in Japan, spanning from the sixth through twentieth centuries. They cover the many separate interchanges that brought Buddhist texts and practices from Korea and China as well as the innovations that arose in Japan.

The Dark Side of the Mirror: Forgetting the Self in Dogen's Genjo Koan

Book cover of The Dark Side of the Mirror: Forgetting the Self in Dogen's Genjo Koan

Genjo Koan is the most seminal and key writing of Eihei Dogen (1200-1253) who was the most important writer in the Zen tradition in Japan. There are a number of translations into English, but these are mostly by Zen specialists. This book reveals the coherence of Dogen's original vision in its spiritual and historical context and thus provides a doorway into the profundity and range of Japanese Buddhism.

The Way of Zen

By Alan Watts,

Book cover of The Way of Zen

This was one of the first books on Buddhism I ever read: I have a battered and much-scribbled-on copy beside me that dates back to 1970. Like Stephen Batchelor he has been seen as an ‘outsider’ to the Buddhist establishment – he described himself ironically as a ‘genuine fake’ – but his psychological understanding, contemporary language and his vivid turn of phrase spoke to me then, and still do now, in a way that much of the more ‘religious’ and scholastic writings never have. For example, he points out that in a sea wave, the actual water isn’t going anywhere; it “only moves up and down, creating the illusion of a ‘piece’ of water moving over the surface. It is a similar illusion that there is a constant ‘self’ moving through successive experiences [and] constituting a link between them.” I would love to have met and listened to Watts, and…

The Heart of Buddhism: Practical Wisdom for an Agitated World

By Guy Claxton,

Book cover of The Heart of Buddhism: Practical Wisdom for an Agitated World

What is my book about?

My Mom was a church-going Christian, so when she found out I was interested in Buddhism she was quite suspicious. (It was actually an escalation of the suspicion she had felt when I had switched my degree major from chemistry to psychology.) This book started life as my attempt to explain to people like my Mom why Buddhism wasn't scary and weird, but a sensible and positive approach to life and the attempt to get better at it. So it is a down-to-earth introduction, shorn of all the exotic trappings. No saffron robes, no tying your legs in knots, no reincarnation.

Peace Is Every Step

By Thich Nhat Hanh,

Book cover of Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life

This slender book is my “bible” for inspiration as well as mindfulness. (One can’t go wrong with a book that includes a foreword by H.H. the Dalai Lama!) The first essay, “Twenty-four Brand-New Hours,” reminds me that each day affords an opportunity to bring “peace, joy, and happiness to ourselves and others.” Thich Nhat Hanh, described in the introduction as “a cross between a cloud, a snail and a piece of heavy machinery—a true religious presence,” humbly offers simple ways to be present in the moment (the only moment we have, btw!). “We are very good at preparing to live,” the author reminds us, “but not very good at living.” The essays in Peace Is Every Step inspire me to breathe more, think less, wake up, and feel alive.

When Things Fall Apart

By Pema Chödrön,

Book cover of When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times

I learned in my grief that the experience of loss can open the door wide for personal growth and transformation. Pema Chodron’s book brings the possibility of gentle healing through the lens of Buddhist practice. After the first year of loss, as I was beginning to regain some stability, this book helped me find my way into new spiritual practices. I used it to expand beyond old beliefs that no longer served me and into new ways of thinking and being. It grounded me in the context of suffering, helping me to see that I wasn’t alone; that suffering was nothing to be ashamed of. And her stories offered some practical ideas that I hadn’t found in my Christian spiritual practice.

Who am I?

As I formed my self-identity I considered myself a spiritual seeker, always straying beyond the boundaries of my more conservative Christian communities. As a minister’s wife, I had a wide experience of Christian-based faith and community. When my husband died instantly of a heart attack, my entire spiritual foundation seemed to crumble. This book is a memoir of my journey to rebuild a new spirituality, founded on the remnants of my original faith and expanding to meet my new and changing experience of who I am. I have a master’s degree in English so the study of literature, mythology, and poetry also strongly influenced my journey, my story, and this memoir.

Do You Want to Be Well? A Memoir of Spiritual Healing

By Christine Christman,

Book cover of Do You Want to Be Well? A Memoir of Spiritual Healing

What is my book about?

When trauma disrupts your foundational beliefs, the journey to a new way of being can be daunting and lonely. In this poetic memoir, Christine brings hope to the possibilities of spiritual healing. During a period of expansive inquiry into a variety of spiritual traditions, her husband’s sudden death created a longing to return to the Christianity of her roots. Finding the patriarchal religion of her upbringing no longer served her, she sought alternative Christian perspectives through a new lens of grief, healing compassion, and the sacred feminine. In Do You Want to Be Well, Christine helps readers courageously explore the spaces where religion fails us, where facing tough realities is necessary, and how self-love is discovered and nurtured.

The Lost Art of Compassion: Discovering the Practice of Happiness in the Meeting of Buddhism and Psychology

By Lorne Ladner,

Book cover of The Lost Art of Compassion: Discovering the Practice of Happiness in the Meeting of Buddhism and Psychology

What is my book about?

Compassion is often seen as a distant, altruistic ideal cultivated by saints, or as an unrealistic response of the naively kind-hearted. But by seeing compassion in this way, we lose out on experiencing the transformative potential of one of our most neglected inner resources.

Clinical psychologist and Tibetan Buddhist practitioner Dr. Lorne Ladner rescues compassion from this marginalized view, showing how its practical application in our life can be a powerful force in achieving happiness. Ladner provides a clear explanation of what healthy compassion is and why it is so essential to our lives. Combining the wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism and Western psychology, The Lost Art of Compassion presents clear, effective practices for cultivating compassion in daily living.

The Case for God

By Karen Armstrong,

Book cover of The Case for God

Armstrong has written brilliant histories of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Chinese spirituality, biographies of Buddha and Mohammed, and a memoir of her own spiritual struggles as a nun who left the Catholic Church. Her reputation as the foremost scholar in our time of the history of religions is well-earned. The Case for God is an erudite account of a human need that has existed through all of recorded history and the thwarting of that need, especially in our own polarized time, by fundamentalism, arrogant misreadings of spiritual texts, and notions of God at odds with the selflessness, creativity, and compassion faith is meant to inspire.

There is widespread confusion about the nature of religious truth. For the first time in history, a significantly large number of people want nothing to do with God. Militant atheists preach a gospel of godlessness with the zeal of missionaries and find an eager audience.

Tracing the history of faith from the Palaeolithic Age to the present, Karen Armstrong shows that meaning of words such as 'belief', 'faith', and 'mystery' has been entirely altered, so that atheists and theists alike now think and speak about God - and, indeed, reason itself - in a way that our ancestors would have…

I grew up a deeply religious child, became a confirmed atheist for decades, but now, in part because of this book, find myself in a different if still uncertain place.

Dorothy Day: Dissenting Voice of the American Century

By John Loughery, Blythe Randolph,

Book cover of Dorothy Day: Dissenting Voice of the American Century

What is my book about?

Telling the life story of Dorothy Day (1897 – 1980) was like falling down the rabbit hole. How was it possible for a woman born to a conservative, racist, anti-Semitic family with no interest in religion to become America’s staunchest advocate for the homeless, most determined pacifist and critic of capitalism, a supporter of civil rights, a believer in civil disobedience willing to go to jail to protest the arms race – and an orthodox Catholic. The paradoxes of this woman never ceased to intrigue me. Her journey from her hard-drinking, sexually active, unsettled youth in Greenwich Village to her conversion and founding of the radical Catholic Worker movement is the subject of the book I wrote with my co-author, Blythe Randolph. Day is a person who made a mark in her time, as both a critic and champion of her Church, a unique figure in women’s history and religious history in this country, and a charismatic individual too little-known today. She is the anti-Trump of modern America.
