Abstract:

Stress is always going to be a part of life, but how we handle it can make all the difference. Westerners consider life a challenge, full of obstacles to be overcome and problems to be solved, while Eastern wisdom teaches harmony with nature rather than opposition to it. Once we realize that stumbling blocks can actually become stepping stones, life becomes more fulfilling. After traveling extensively in the Far East and studying for years in Buddhist monasteries and with well-known Zen Masters, Dr. Arthur Sokoloff, known as the "Zen Dentist," has found the perfect antidote--inner serenity. Here, Dr. Sokoloff gently guides us through the basic tenets of the four major Eastern philosophies--Taoism, traditional Buddhism, Zen Buddhism, and Confucianism--and shows us how to integrate their wisdom into our everyday lives to combat anxiety and achieve inner serenity.--From publisher description.
