By combining the teachings of Zen with the modern science of psychology, the authors have forged a new path to peace and healing. The method is accessible regardless of spiritual background, and requires less than half an hour a day. Experienced practitioners Gerry Shishin Wick and Ilia Shinko Perez have drawn from a wide array of disciplines to create the Great Heart Method. It transcends the erstwhile limitations of Zen, which sometimes can be used to deny feelings and personal problems, but uses meditation as an effective means of identifying and working through mental blockages. The book focuses on restoring a heart-mind connection, compassionately healing one's wounded inner self, and fully experiencing difficult emotions with nonjudgmental awareness in order to fully transform them.
