Reflect, meditate, and grow with 52 weeks of guided journal prompts rooted in Zen Buddhism
Combining the practice of Zen Buddhism with journaling is a powerful way to live mindfully, gain clarity and perspective, and let go of stress and worries. Whether you’re new to Zen or you’ve practiced for decades, A Year of Zen guides you through 52 weeks of journal prompts that inspire self-exploration, reflection, and mindfulness to help you live a happier, more fulfilling life.
Zen teaches that every aspect of your life can be a place of practice. Each week, these writing exercises will bring your attention to seven areas: meditation, liturgy, work, body, study, art, and the world. By making the time to journal and meditate with Zen guidance, you’re creating a ritual that stimulates your physical, creative, and intellectual growth, and reminds you that life is a gift and a sacred journey.
A Year of Zen includes:
- Calls to create―Express your thoughts and feelings in both writing and drawing, letting your creativity shine.
- A prompt for every day―Reflect on seven prompts based in Zen Buddhism each week.
- Season of Zen―Journal through all four seasons with spring-, summer-, autumn-, and winter-themed illustrations.
Tap into the ancient wisdom of Zen Buddhism with a year’s worth of reflective and thought-provoking journal prompts to help you lead a calmer, more mindful life.
