Meet the Author

Heino Engel studied architecture in Germany immediately following the end of World War II, then traveled through Egypt and Arabia, spent more than a year in India, Burma, Malaysia, and Thailand, before arriving in Japan. There, in his own words, he "realized that the Japanese house is as invaluable an experience for the contemporary architect as are the ancient Acropolis of Athens in Greece and the modern high-rise office towers of the United States." He remained in Japan for three years, concentrating on the study of the Japanese house, people, life, language, and culture, and also becoming a member of the Architectural Institute of Japan.

    He will be sorley missed.

    This book is one of the most phenomenal pieces of literature out there. It poses so many theories and all are so simple, yet complex. This man was a indeed a sage, and we will miss him.

    Enlightening...

    This is by far, one of the best written books on the topic of meditation. Using brilliantly simple examples, Jou cleverly uncovers topics that seem to elude the mind at first thought (which itself is what meditation is about!) He is able to use scientific examples to explain natural phenomena on a deep level which encourages the reader to see the bigger picture. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
