The Dr. Pat Show: Talk Radio to Thrive By!: Grassroots Zen: Community and Practice in the Twenty-First Century with Authors Manfred Steger & Perle Besserman

Grassroots Zen offers a study of how one Zen group returned to an ancient Chinese tradition of community meditation practice without a leader or hierarchy.

It outlines an authentic, “grassroots” approach, urging people from all walks of life to come together in meditation and the study of dharma.

Both Manfred and his wife Perle Besserman are deeply dedicated to the cultivation of a Western-style lay practice that maintains the essential elements of Zen—sitting meditation, interviews with a teacher, and silent retreats.
