This is a handy notebook size about the same as a composition book, almost 100 pages, with space to reflect on assigned questions. The book opens with some consideration of the problems of discipline and lifestyle and then moves on to three sections called MEDITATE, LISTEN, WRITE. The chapters are short and lead the journal writer into the material of reflection. If you work with a teacher, this is a good tool for staying on track. If you are new to Zen or you are without a teacher, this is also an excellent tool to lead you through a consideration of questions about Zen practice and Buddhism. You don't have to be a great writer to do some soul searching in the privacy of your workbook.   ENTERING THE STREAM  is the first in a series with succeeding ZEN JOURNAL GUIDES coming out in future months.
