How to Be Zen in a Crisis Journal is the quintessential journal for making it through life's most challenging times. Samantha Gordon offers the timely gift of mindfulness with this beautifully designed, uplifting journal for those who want to survive and thrive during and after a crisis. It is the perfect complement to the book How to be Zen in a Crisis or a fantastic standalone guided journal with space for you to reflect. The journal provides just the right amount of prompts to guide you on your journey to peace. This is an accessible zen journal for all walks of life, in every type of crisis. This is meditative reflection for when your life is on fire. This is a self-help journal for when your world is upside down - and it's not because you're doing a handstand in yoga class. Whether your crisis is a global pandemic (*ahem*), sexual harassment, a bad boss, rape, a court case, breakup, divorce, kidnap, death, injury, sickness, sociopath reeking havoc in your life, a combination of many or any sort of other impending doom... real crisis comes in many forms. It doesn't matter which particular flavor of crisis you are experiencing, they all have a similar vein of terror and panic that runs through them that requires deep self-care. You are in a crisis and it's time to pick up the pen and get zen. Throughout the journal, you are supported and encouraged to dive deep and uncover the truth of the predicament you are facing. You are guided to find the light at the end of the tunnel - or light that biotch up yourself, through the power of meditation and journaling. Journal your way to zen and liberation from the crisis. From that point of calmness, you can then make the best decisions and those decisions can save you in your time of need. Being zen, has a fundamental role in shaping your brain, whereby it can better assist you through a crisis. Numerous studies have shown that relaxation techniques and mindful journaling can allow you to not only be more relaxed, but to have better awareness of what is happening around you and improve your decision making capabilities. There is no sitting in a lotus position while ignoring the disaster around you - no, this space for self reflection will improve your life in a practical and introspective way. This is mindfulness for resilience. This is for everyone who needs to get pragmatic during a crisis, no matter your background. This is a space to articulate your thoughts and feelings. How do we get zen, in this context? Well firstly, let's address the myths. To be zen, you don't have to renounce your possessions and move to Nepal. To be zen, you don't have to chant, say om or wear wooden jewelry. To be zen, you don't have to pray to Buddha, Vishnu or sacrifice a goat. To be zen, you just need to journal and do the inner work that goes along with it. You can not only survive, but thrive from the crisis - and you can journal your way there. You can be calm and analytically assess the situation. You can be relaxed and strategically write out your plans for the next moment. You can address all of your emotions and be mentally stable. You can survive the crisis and be a better person for it. Go as deep as you want to. With introspective quotes throughout and plenty of space to act as the backdrop for your analysis and inner work, this journal gives just enough direction for you to connect to what is really needed during this unprecedented time. Together, we breathe through the process to being zen with meditative prompts. You will embody a new sense of self by centering yourself. It's cleansing. It's rewarding. It's powerful. It's fun. Beautiful, complete in its simplicity and modernly zen, How to be Zen in a Crisis Journal is the journal you need right now.

It doesn't matter which particular flavor of crisis you are experiencing, they all have a similar vein of terror and panic that runs through them and this is the crisis to zen guide to come out of them. You are in a crisis. Everything is wack to the exponent of 1000. You didn't know the crisis was coming. How should you know shit was hitting the fan until it was swirling around the room, putridly pungent in the air and hitting you in the face? It really doesn't matter, the point is - you need to get zen, fast. We aren't getting zen because it's in vogue - we need to get zen because it's essential to our livelihood. Being zen, has a fundamental role in shaping our brain, whereby it can better assist us through a crisis. Numerous studies have shown that relaxation techniques, being mindful and being zen can allow us to not only be more relaxed, but to have better awareness of what is happening around us and improve our decision-making capabilities. How do we get zen, in this context? Well firstly, let's address the myths. To be zen, you don't have to take an oath of silence. To be zen, you don't have to renounce your possessions and move to Nepal. To be zen, you don't have to join a monastery and shave your head. To be zen, you don't have to be serene as a nun and walk on a cloud. To be zen, you don't have to chant, say om or wear wooden jewelry. To be zen, you don't have to pray to Buddha, Vishnu or sacrifice a goat. You can be lively, enthusiastic, playful and profoundly powerful... all while embodying a core sense of peace. From that point of calmness, you can then make the best decisions and those decisions can save you in your time of need. You can not only survive, but thrive from the crisis - and you can laugh your way there. This is not how to be zen on a clear day sitting under a tree, with a gentle breeze coming from the east, blowing through your freshly shaved head. No, this is how you assess the reality of the crisis and clear the way to reach a point of resilience. You can be calm and analytical. You can be relaxed and strategic. You can feel all of your emotions and be mentally stable. You can survive the crisis and be a better person for it. With clear and insightful tools, we'll map out each step forward in the zen pathway. We'll address what needs to be addressed, step-by-step. We'll shine light on the blind spots you've been missing. There is no sitting in a lotus position while ignoring the disaster around you - no, these tools will improve your life in a practical and easy-to-follow way. This is mindfulness for resilience. This is for everyone who needs to get pragmatic during a crisis, no matter their background. With introspection, analysis, inner work and a lot of self-care, we take the necessary tools and connect to what is really needed during this unprecedented time. We do what needs to be done and we learn to breathe through the process. There are meditative exercises throughout to practice each level in the zen process. You will embody a new sense of self by centering yourself. Insightful, entertaining and modernly zen, How to be Zen in a Crisis is the book you need right now.

Why do some people drive change while others are blindsided by it? Why are some people able to adapt and thrive? How can we make change easier? Truly successful people don’t merely tolerate discomfort—they embrace it and seek it out again and again. Business founders and university students, top athletes and couch potatoes, meditation gurus and military leaders all have very different ways of coping with discomfort, but the most successful among them believe that withstanding discomfort is a skill that has helped them in hugely positive ways. Some were forced into discomfort through no choice of their own—a life-altering illness, a business fiasco—while others signed up for it because they had goals they were determined to achieve. Some degree of discomfort is inherently good for you. It can spur you on, pushing you to test your own limits. Learning to tolerate, and then embrace, discomfort is the foundation for change, for individuals and businesses alike. Becoming comfortable with discomfort won’t just make us more resilient and more successful, however we define success. It will also make us happier.

This book can best be described as an extended meditation on suffering, phenomenological in method and dialectical in point of view. The angle the author takes is that of moral self-examination rather than conventional scholarly inquiry, and his aim is to think through and evaluate a fundamental claim of our culture, from Aeschylus to Solzhenitsyn, that suffering is the greatest spiritual teacher.
