Embracing the Inconceivable
Interspiritual practice of Zen and Christianity
AUTHOR Ellen Birx
Written by a woman who is both a Zen roshi and a Christian, Embracing the Inconceivable is the perfect guide for people of either faith — or those who share both — to experience the joy at their intersection. It will appeal to Christians who are interested in the interspiritual practice of Christianity and eastern forms of meditation and mindfulness.
Also included are sections on prayers and practices for those wishing to explore and apply the thoughtful insights Birx offers to their own interspiritual practice.
“Ellen Birx has done it all. She is a grandmother, a university professor, a devout Christian and a Zen master. In this book Ellen weaves these disparate elements in her life into one lived reality that is remarkable for its clarity, wisdom and beauty.
