Ten Zen Questions & Zen and the Art of Consciousness

Blackmore, S 2011 Zen and the Art of Consciousness, Oxford, Oneworld Publications, ISBN-10: 185168798X

The paperback edition of Ten Zen Questions is now published with the new title of  “Zen and the Art of Consciousness“.

I hope all you meditators out there will enjoy learning how I got on with the questions, and may try asking them yourself. You might like to meditate on one of the questions first and then read the chapter, or the other way around.
