The Path of Aliveness: A Contemporary Zen Approach to Awakening Body and Mind
Written by Christian Dillo
In The Path of Aliveness, Zen and Taoist Qigong teacher Christian Dillo offers a path of meaningful
transformation tailored to our times. Through potent conceptual work and
practical examples, he shows how to carefully examine the interrelationship
between our senses, body energy, thoughts, and emotions so that we can transform
our lives in the direction of less suffering and more freedom, wisdom, and compassion. This secular reconstruction respectfully plumbs Buddhist tradition–including classic teachings such as the foundations of mindfulness meditation, the four noble truths, and the practice of lovingkindness–while encouraging practitioners to rely on their own embodied experience for maintaining an alive and engaged presence no matter the circumstances.
