Product Description

Work as a Spiritual Practice: A Practical Buddhist Approach to Inner Growth and Satisfaction on the Job (9780767902335): Lewis Richmond: Books. Spirituality at work? Isn't that the oxymoron to end all oxymorons? Not according to Lewis Richmond, a veteran corporate executive and former Zen Buddhist priest who convincingly disputes the phrase's inherent contradictions in Work as a Spiritual Practice. Even people who are comfortable with the notion of spiritual practice, he concedes, are skeptical when I say that it can be done not just at home or at a retreat center but in the workplace. Nonetheless, he maintains, this book is based on the premise that it can be done, and the circumstances and challenges of our work life can be transformed into opportunities for inner growth. After explaining how common mental and emotional experiences can be parceled into four distinct categories (conflict, inspiration, accomplishment, and stagnation), he effectively shows how Buddhist principles might be employed to mitigate related problems and enhance associated opportunities. The bulk of this satisfying book is divided into sections that correspond to these categories, with each exploring appropriate practices followed by real-life examples that illustrate their power and applicability. Recommended. --Howard Rothman
