1) "Brush Meditation" (An introduction to Japanese calligraphy)
2) "The Japanese Way of the Flower" (A guide to Ikebana flower arrangement)
3) "Living the Japanese Arts & Ways" (Methods for reaching your full potential in life)
Even if you're not directly interested in calligraphy or flower arrangement, anyone and everyone can benefit from increased relaxation, concentration, and coordination imparted by the various concepts in "Living the Japanese Arts and Ways." All in all, this is an excellent resource for several different Japanese cultural arts, and with three books wrapped into one, it's a real bargain too.
