Dr. Scott Shaw presents techniques for strengthening the Ki, the universal life force with which you are born, and for consciously harnessing the Ki around you to help you through the many periods of duress that daily life presents. These secret Korean methods will give you access to needed energy "on request" so that you can draw on inner power to get you through whatever challenge you may meet--physical, mental, or emotional. Shaw describes how Ki flows through the channels (or meridians) in the body, describes each meridian's function, the indications of Ki blockage in the meridians, and the method of stimulating Ki flow. He also suggests diet changes that can improve Ki flow, in addition to showing you how to actively focus Ki into specific regions of the body or mental functioning. With meditation, breathing, concentration, and relaxation exercises.--From publisher description
Nirvana in a nutshell : 157 Zen meditations by Scott Shaw( )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nirvana is not to be found in the fulfillment of endless desires, the analysis of profound thoughts, or even hours, days, or years of meditative contemplation. In fact, it is the very act of seeking to obtain happiness, peace, and enlightenment that keeps them out of reach. Nirvana in a Nutshell offers 157 Zen meditations to help you discover what you might be doing (or not doing) in your life to sabotage your goal of reaching inner peace, your own personal paradise. Let go of the quest and become that which you truly seek and you will find your own Nirvana. Nirvana is the state of grace where t
About peace by Scott Shaw( )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These are Zen meditations for modern times -- cold comfort, maybe, for some of us who might want platitudes and the promise of peacefulness being handed to us on a silver platter. Because, as Shaw points out, conflict is a part of life. Zen Buddhism was even founded in conflict. No one can give anyone else peace. Peace comes to those who seek it -- in the moment and for the moment only. The pace of lives continues to accelerate, though, with more and more demands being placed on us by both others and ourselves. This collection, aimed at gaining inner peace, is wonderfully suited to the breakneck pace of our lives today. The future is too full of work, laundry, family, and other commitments -- not to mention the unknown. The past is gone. There's no time like the present to make like the eye of the hurricane and choose to be at peace with ourselves. The 108 meditations in this book offer a very contemporary respite from internal and external conflict. Their number and their form, however, is steeped in tradition. One-hundred-and-eight is a sacred number in Buddhism, where there is also the tradition of meditating with malas -- strung beads, which come in multiples of nine -- 27, 56, or 108. Their form follows Buddhist tradition as well -- they're modern koans, or riddles to ponder, and dharma stories
