One of the top ten best selling Stone Bridge Press books of 1999, "Brush Meditation" details the time-honored art of Japanese calligraphy and how it functions as meditation in motion.

"Living the Japanese Arts & Ways" presents 45 essential principles—like wabi, “immovable mind,” and “stillness in motion”—that are universal in the Japanese classic tradition. It received a "Spirituality & Health" magazine Best Spiritual Books Award.

The same book was one of "ForeWord" magazine's top five books and a finalist for their Book of the Year Award.
