Dr. Arthur Sokoloff, known as the "Zen Dentist, " has seen what stress can do to his patients and his colleagues, and, after traveling extensively in the Far East and studying for years in Buddhist monasteries and with well-known Zen Masters, he has found the perfect antidote - inner serenity. In Life Without Stress Dr. Sokoloff gently guides us through the basic tenets of the four major Eastern philosophies - Taoism, traditional Buddhism, Zen Buddhism, and Confucianism - and shows us how to integrate their wisdom into our everyday lives to combat anxiety and achieve inner serenity. By sharing ancient parables as well as anecdotes from his own life, Dr. Sokoloff demystifies the complicated, often esoteric principles of these philosophies and proves that combining our pragmatic, Western view of the world with the wisdom of the Far East allows us to gain the best of both worlds. He believes that the first moment we begin to flow, rather than continually swim upstream, something changes and we learn that what we are seeking is already within us.

A practical guide to the wisdom of the East that shows how we can apply it to our pragmatic Western view of the world to achieve inner peace.

In "Life Without Stress, Arthur Sokoloff demystifies Eastern teachings and shows how the basic tenets of the four major philosophies--Taoism, traditional Buddhism, Zen Buddhism, and Confucianism--can be applied to life in the West. Through re-tellings of ancient parables and anecdotes from his own life, Sokoloff elucidates the practical lessons inherent in each philosophy: Taoism teaches us to understand that we are at one with the universe; traditional Buddhism offers the keys to finding and eliminating the roots of unhappiness; Zen Buddhism enhances our intuitive abilities; and Confucianism shows us how inner qualities affect and influence our relationships with the external world.

The ideal primer for readers interested in Eastern spirituality, "Life Without Stress offers clear explanations and gentle guidance for handling the stress in our lives and achieving inner serenity.
