Zen and the Art of Falling in Love by Brenda Shoshanna

Perennially popular topics Zen and romance come together in this unique guide that reveals how to fall in love and stay that way.

We are meant to be in love. Love energizes our daily existence, heals the body and mind and makes every moment precious. So why aren't we in love all the time?

In Zen and the Art of Falling in Love, psychologist, relationship expert and Zen practitioner Brenda Shoshanna shows readers how to rejuvenate their romantic lives by combining a psychological understanding of relationships with the way of Zen practice. The lessons provided by such practices as Taking Your Shoes Off (Becoming Available), Sitting on the Cushion (Meeting Yourself), Cleaning House (Emptying Yourself) and Receiving the Stick (Dealing with Blows) can offer new insight into the common problems of miscommunication, lies, betrayal, jealousy, insecurity, loss, and disappointment. Using the lessons of Zen practice, you can open your life to love, fall in love—and stay in love.

I enjoyed this book because although I have always heard about living in the "zen" state of mind, I never really believed in it or studied it. I started reading about the conscious mind in various other books and somehow came across this book when I was down and out in my relationships. I wanted to know what I was doing wrong and why my relationships ended so miserably. So I read this book and was pleasantly surprised by how much I learned. I did a lot of reflecting and realized I had been doing a lot of things wrong, and this book made me see the light. It gave me insight into relationships and how they should work, be, and how one should feel. I loved this book and will continue to read it from time to time to remind myself of the simple concepts I need to practice to enforce my newfound knowledge. I definitely recommend it.
