Robert Meikyo Rosenbaum brings the two traditions together in a unique presentation that elicits Zen insights from his fresh interpretation of verses from the perennial Taoist classic, the Tao Te Ching
. Personal anecdotes from Rosenbaum's life will illustrate the dynamic potential of his approach, skillfully revealing Zen within the Tao and the Tao of Zen. This wisdom, when combined with a meditation practice, offers practical guidance for our day-to-day lives.
