KIRKUS REVIEW

Jack Huber is a Western psychologist with psychoanalysis behind him who decided to open himself to the spiritual disciplines of the East. Accordingly, he arranged to take a five day course in Zen in Japan and to spend three weeks in Burma undergoing Satipatthana training. Meditating under the instruction of his Zen master, he ""succeeded in Zen"" experiencing a glimpse into his own unconditional nature and emerging with a new sense of the immanence of change, the value of the moment. He then proceeded to Burma, where his experience was less fortunate: whether because of the still recent taxing of his Japanese sojourn or because of the solitary procedure pursued, he could not concentrate his attention, decided to leave. Huber remains with a respect for the value of meditation in the psycho-spiritual arsenal, would find a place for it here. He conveys his own venture with care and candor.
