Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

A koan is a "Zen phrase or question that can be used as an object of contemplation, leading the student to deep insight into life." Timothy Freke's Zen Koan Card Pack gives you a chance to dip your toes into this ancient philosophical pool. The beautifully decorated box set contains a small guide and 30 koan cards, whose phrases may strike you as ridiculous at first ("to find yourself is to lose yourself"), yet generate new discoveries as they are considered more carefully. You can look at the cards by themselves or consult Freke's accompanying guide for ways to consider the koans. The cards might just prove addictive, because the meaning of each koan changes with one's own experiences and when pursued in meditation. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

. . . get this book and card set! The book is attractive, short, very clear and -- most importantly -- approachable. It includes a short history on Zen, a summary of its concepts, and possible interpretations and things to think about for each koan. The koan cards will help you expand your mind, and use it in ways other than cognitively.
And no peeking in the book until you've given each koan time to simmer in your mind :-)
Very highly recommended whether or not you're new to Zen.

Format: Hardcover
This zen card & book set are very beautifully illustrated. The cards advice seems buddhist in nature. The book is hardcover and very colorful with text boxes offering additional contemplations along with in depth card details. This is a nice set to add to your tarot & oracle card collection!
