A Year of Zen: A 52-Week Guided Journal (A Year of Daily Reflections)
(as of Oct 22,2021 09:21:59 UTC – Details)
Reflect, meditate, and explore through a year of Zen journaling
Each day is a new empty space to bring to life―it can be loaded with stress or decorated with moments of calm and clarity. Embark on a wondrous journey through the self with this 52-week guided journal from Zen priest and teacher Bonnie Myotai Treace, sensei. Her wise, thought-provoking prompts will lead beginners and experienced practitioners alike through the seasons, filling the blank spaces with peaceful self-exploration and reflection every day.
Explore topics from the mundane to the holy with creative prompts like:
- Reverence―Zen artists tend to be very reverential toward the tools of their trade. Describe your pen, brush, musical instrument, etc., with the deep, precise attention that reflects that reverence.
- Being a Curious Being―What if you could become more curious and impartial toward your thoughts instead of being so easily persuaded by them? Write a few lines as you consider.
- Evening Threshold―Catch yourself at sundown, light fading from the sky. What does the arrival of night trigger or bring up for you?
Walk the path of growth and build a mindful daily practice with this Zen Buddhism journal.

Embark on a sacred year of Zen journaling practice
Explore mindfulness and ease stress with 52 weeks of daily journaling guided by Zen Buddhist priest and teacher Bonnie Myotai Treace, Sensei.
Find peace in every season through writing and creativity prompts like:
Moon in a dewdrop
Each small bit of a thing also contains the whole. A dewdrop has the ocean and the moon within it. So do you. How can you appreciate and celebrate this?
Making time to sit
To make time for meditation, hunt for the “small animals” of time, the small mouse of a minute hiding here and there. Being a great hunter, now sit down and breathe. Reflect.
Go spend three minutes in a safe spot outside in nature with your eyes lightly closed. Write down the sounds you heard, in the sequence you heard them (just do your best).
