Read full description of the books:
Charlotte Joko Beck, Autorin des Bestsellers 'Zen im Alltag', verbindet in ihren Büchern östliche Geistigkeit und Disziplin mit westlicher Pragmatik. Im Dialog mit ihren Schülern erarbeitet sie einen unprätentiösen, den nüchternen Alltagsanforderungen angepassten Lebensweg. Jack Kornfield bezeichnet diesen Weg als 'common sense zen'. Die Autorin bringt ihre Leser auf den Boden der Tatsachen, sofern sie bereit sind, sich den Notwendigkeiten des Alltags zu stellen. Der Lohn: Glücksgefühle, die nur aus der harmonischen Übereinstimmung mit sich selbst und dem Leben entstehen.

Read information about the authorCharlotte Joko Beck was an American Zen teacher. Born in New Jersey, she studied music at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and worked for some time as a pianist and piano teacher. She married and raised a family of four children, then separated from her husband and worked as a teacher, secretary, and assistant in a university department. She began Zen practice in her 40s with Hakuyu Taizan Maezumi in Los Angeles, and later with Hakuun Yasutani and Soen Nakagawa. Having received Dharma transmission from Taizan Maezumi Roshi, she opened the Zen Center San Diego in 1983, serving as its head teacher until July 2006.
Beck was responsible for a number of important innovations in Zen teaching. In particular, she taught students to work with the emotions of everyday life rather than attempting to avoid or escape them. Because she was adept at teaching students to work with their psychological states, she attracted a number of students who were interested in the relationship between Zen and modern psychology. Several of her Dharma heirs are practicing psychologists/psychiatrists. In 1995 Joko, along with three of her Dharma heirs, founded the Ordinary Mind Zen School.
Shortly after Beck’s departure in 2006, she revoked Dharma transmission from two senior students: Ezra Bayda and Elizabeth Hamilton. Beck also stated that Zen Center San Diego should not claim to represent her or her teaching. In 2006 Joko moved to Prescott, Arizona, where she continued to teach until she retired as a teacher in late 2010. In the spring of 2010, Joko announced Gary Nafstad as her last Dharma successor
