Reviews

"A well-written, wise, insightful book on creativity and Zen, a subject made all the more intriguing and persuasive by Daido Loori's long experience as a student and teacher in both. The text is enhanced by fine Zen dialogues and stories, poems, koan, photographs, and illustrations as well as apt, stimulating quotations from many writers and Zen teachers. An altogether excellent book."
--PETER MATTHIESSEN (Muryo Roshi)

"Zen is the immediate suchness and spontaneity of life, a creativity that is art itself. John Daido Loori, one of the truly great American Zen masters, has given us a simple yet profound guide to art, creativity, and life itself--for they all spring from the same source, the same ordinary magic of this and every moment. The Zen of Creativity is a rare, elegant, beautiful book, highly recommended."
--KEN WILBER, author of A Brief History of Everything
