Whilst it is true that Zen can be the Way of religion, for instance Zen Buddhism, Zen can be applied to anything in life, and I have a
quite a few strong interests in life. I have been a therapist for the past 30
years. Around 25 years ago, I got interested in Zen and it transformed the way I
worked. It is a matter of focus. Through meditation, I developed a mindfulness, and through this mindfulness, I recognized that there is
only now, and if I took care of the "now" by focusing 100% on each
experience and task I worked on, the future worked out the way it was meant to work out.
I am semi-retired from my therapy work now and have found a love of writing. My latest writing venture is about Wales, my homeland.
