Reviews


Mindfulness, back to the here and now

“Brookhuis is a coach and teaches Zen meditation and mindfulness. A small book with chapters such as "Life on Autopilot", "We are not our thinking" and "we are not our feelings". It contains many mindfulness exercises.”

Zen and the Art of Quality

"Zen and the art of quality" gives depth and understanding of an aspect that is important in everyone's life, but which too often, under the pressure of mercantile and economic principles, loses its true meaning."

The Tao of conducting (Jan Stulen)

(Marc Brookhuis wrote the appendix about Taoism)

"But then there is that beautiful Zen koan in which a disciple asks his master what the secret of Buddhism is and he gets the answer," Drink when you are thirsty, eat when you are hungry and sleep when you are sleepy. " It is no different with conducting, and that makes Stulen's book excellent- with two excellent guest contributions by André Presser and Marc Brookhuis on accompanying ballet performances and respectively Taoism - more clear than any other publication on this subject. ”
