Descriptions du produit


By Way of a Foreword
This is the best account I have ever read of the education of a Zen monk in America.

I was ordained a long while ago. Shortly thereafter my teacher let me know that I was a “pretend monk.” That was true. I was in it for the robes.

Shozan Jack Haubner has trained for more than nine years with a teacher whom I love, on a mountain that I know. Difference is, he is the real deal. He stuck it out while (many years before he arrived) I escaped.

But now this punk of a monk, who should be tending to his own affairs, has decided to infect the real world with his tall tales, and worse, to let the cat out of the bag. And what a sly, dangerous, beautiful, foul-smelling, heartwarming beast it is. We can almost forgive him.

If you are interested in these matters, this is a book you will enjoy. If you want to go a little deeper, this is a book you will need.

—Jikan Leonard Cohen

Revue de presse

“The author’s search to ‘grow into a true human being’ is described with startling metaphors, acute insights, and humor. . . . Haubner’s unorthodox take on the spiritual search, marked by moments of grace, and his strength as an essayist will win over a specific audience willing to accept his dare.”—Publishers Weekly

“This punk of a monk, who should be tending to his own affairs, has decided to infect the real world with his tall tales, and worse, to let the cat out of the bag. And what a sly, dangerous, beautiful, foul-smelling, heart-warming beast it is.”—Leonard Cohen, from the foreword

“This is the funniest, most genuine spiritual memoir I have ever read. It feels odd to call it a memoir, given how it is chock full of genuine Buddhist insight. A must-read, especially for those of us who have been accused of being in gay porn films.”—Lodro Rinzler, author of The Buddha Walks into a Bar…

Zen Confidential has a virtue rare in spiritual books, it includes the whole of life. Here we have sex, bathroom customs of the monastery, politics, suicide, drugs, meanness, marriage, standup comedy, Las Vegas, koans and a 105-year-old Zen master.  It’s a window into a magical world that pretends to be ordinary and an ordinary world that is magical. Haubner has an acute eye for the ridiculousness of the world and a larger-than-life way of seeing. It’s a fresh, living account of this kind of Zen in America and of living well and serving the way.” —John Tarrant, author of Bring Me the Rhinoceros and Other Zen Koans That Will Save Your Life

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "the middle way" between Funny, Shocking, and Deep. 15 mai 2013
Par Shanel - Publié sur Amazon.com
My husband and I took ZEN CONFIDENTIAL as an accompaniment to our road trip. We took turns reading the stories out loud as the other one was driving. We had many laughs, deep conversations, and a few moments of "can he do that?!". I loved every minute of it. As a person who tries to live a zen life but fails miserably the second the children come home from school, I have to say this book is Modern Zen life in it's rawest form (rawest... yeah you read it first here). It is extremely well written and I look forward to reading more of his work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not What I Expected 18 mai 2013
Par Heeragen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Once I started, I couldn't put this book down. Definitely a page-turner to the very end. Think J.D. Salinger as Zen monk. I learned a lot about Zen and a bit about life in general. I feel like I now know as much about the author as I do about my best friend. Very funny, very human, very honest. Haubner isn't afraid to tell the kinds of family secrets every single one of us has and does so in a voice that knows itself to be broken, is trying his best to fix, while making us aware of the beauty behind normal human foibles. I highly recommend it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 While irreverent, it is refreshingly honest... 18 août 2013
Par Christopher J Born - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I had read Shozan Jack Haubner's pieces in the past in Tricycle magazine and elsewhere and have even assigned some of the pieces to my students in an Introduction to Religious Studies class. For some reason, North Americans view Zen as a serene practice free of complication and, in short, reality. Shozan Jack conveys the challenges of bringing the theories of the mind (and of faith by extension) into the concrete. Meditation looks beautiful on film, but sitting for hours on end has real consequences for the body and on the mind.

Shozan Jack demystifies the practice of Zen and, by extension, makes it more accessible to the potential practitioner. The honesty about the harsh realities of giving one's life over to Zen practice is refreshing. In addition to Shozan Jack's deep understanding of Zen practice and history, his ability to communicate the challenges of the monk life is laudable.

I highly recommend this text as a concrete presentation of the pursuit of enlightenment..

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I loved this book 3 juin 2013
Par your mother - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I loved this book. I loved its honesty, depth and humor.
Clearly a partial view of life at Mt Baldy but in its way a very accurate one.
I asked my husband to read this book because I thought that I might have enjoyed it due to my many years of practice at Mt Baldy. He laughed out loud and did not put it down. You do not have to be a Zen practitionner to see the cutting humor of this book but,it helps!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Can't stop quoting the quips of cutting wisdom 18 mai 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
One of my all-time favorite books & I'm only on page 50. I'm slow reading it because I have to stop so often to post quotes of cutting wisdom from the pages. The author uses disturbingly hilarious prose to bring to light our own insecurities by poking fun at himself. I will be buying more copies as gifts.
