About the Book:

 We live in a world that glorifies and glamorizes whoever has the most money, and whoever shines the most brightly. However, is being a top dog synonymous with happiness? The evidence suggests, no. If so, the richest among us would be immune to humiliation, grief, depression, and anxiousness. These emotions are significant parts of the human condition regardless of age, economic status, religion, or background. Sometimes, the higher we climb on that corporate ladder, the more we fear the potential fall. When we are on the bottom rung, we can appreciate the ground below which houses our roots. Moreover, we can value the journey from rags to riches, and the journey from riches to rags. When forced to see from the ground up (or the back alley), we are led to a transformational and fulfilling life. This evolution has led me back to my ethnic roots to recoup all that it provides. This little keepsake book points out the value in life's simplest things. When life does not go as planned, and we're hit with surprises, the solutions can be found in nature, and in ourselves. Use this little book when you've hit a troubling spot, or if you are curious to see from a backward –yet, oh, so progressive— perspective.

"Going Back to Zen: Where to Find Peace So You Can Live Like Mad by Janine Vance is a wonderful book filled with all sorts of self help information. The book is simple to understand and reference back to as each chapter focuses on a different topic, so no searching through an entire book to find that one thing you want to read again. Going Back to Zen contains information on things like breathing, cleansing teas, nutrition (but not detailed diets), philosophy, thinking techniques, mindfulness, etc. It really pulls a number of different self-help philosophies and techniques into a nice concise and easily accessible and understandable book.

I would highly recommend Going Back to Zen if you want a book that you can reach for when you need a boost or reminder that life is not as back as you might think sometimes. You just need to stop and smell the roses deeply with a hot cup of ginger or ginseng tea in your hands."

"Zen with a helping of a number of other techniques." LF, Amazon Reader

"This book is gently insightful into several themes that concern us as humans living at this point in history. The author blends Eastern thought and applies it to life in the West. The book is divided into twenty-plus chapters that are on different topics. The topics are interrelated and several greater themes emerge like the meaning of nature in our mechanized, technical lives and the different levels of healing that the body, mind, and soul may need. The author has an easy-to-understand way of writing even on some of these more difficult and abstract topics. She gently and kindly encourages us to explore the mental patterns that may or may not be working for us and those around us. In the end, she even includes her own favorite guided meditation. If you're looking for a book to get you thinking about some of the deeper aspects of what it means to be human, you might enjoy the essays in this book. There's much food for thought here, so I recommend that you read and digest only one or two chapters/essays at a time to get the most benefit from this book. I also suggest making a little note to yourself at the top of each chapter about what it means to you so that you can more easily come back to it if you find yourself grappling with the topic of the chapter."
