Tranquility du Jour #503: The Way of Zen

In this week’s edition of Tranquility du Jour, I chat with Zen teacher Brad Warner about how his recent book, Letters to a Dead Friend about Zen. We discuss Zen practice has been a lifeline in a difficult world, what he wished he'd shared with his friend about spirituality and meditation, and how the book is a unique tribute to both a life lost and the one Warner has found.
