Past Reviews and Endorsements
"Shoshanna has some insightful things to say about anger in the family, in the workplace, at God and at destiny. The Anger Diet is a resource that can change the way you view yourself and others. It will enable you to assess the role of this emotion in your life and help you to give up grudges, blaming others and playing the victim."
--Spirituality & Health

"Dr. Shoshanna's words are wonderful!"
--Marianne Williamson

“A powerful, potentially life-changing book.”
–Body & Soul

"This is relationship, samurai style, as we are systematically led along the path from "becoming available" to "meeting the beloved."...Shoshanna studied with the zen masters Soen Nakagawa Roshi and Eido Shimano Roshi; the rigor of traditional monastic training shines through the spare language and format.  Aspects of Zen training that can be controversial or confounding are presented matter-of-factly....The reader can just follow the "Steppingstones to Love" in each chapter--small actions that, like consistent meditation practice, lead incrementally to awareness.  For those with love issues--isn't that most of us, at one time or another?--Shoshanna holds out the redemptive possibilities of practice."
--Tricycle Magazine (on Zen and the Art of Falling in Love)

"Readers searching for broader meaning will revel in her ability to weave together the basic tenets of relationship psychology with the self-realization techniques of Zen practice. Nor is Shoshanna's advice limited to affairs of the heart; much of her counsel-to be open, loving and full of faith-feels relevant to all aspects of life."
--Publishers Weekly

"There's some good, solid advice here that just might help the lovelorn break some of their destructive patterns and connect the dots as to why true love is always passing them by."
--St. Petersburg Times

"Falling in love doesn't mean being blind or entering into fantasy," says Brenda Shoshanna, author of Zen and the Art of Falling in Love. "It means waking up out of darkened dreams to finally see the beauty that surrounds us." Sounds good."
--Chicago Sun Times

"Shoshanna extends an empty and richly filled hand, offering both the sublime and the practical, which are one and the same in the Zen world. This is a highly recommended volume for beginners and new practitioners who are coming to the truth that "to find the answers to your life questions, you must look within. Nothing less will do. Nothing more is needed."' 
--Publishers Weekly [for Zen Miracles]

 “Dr. Shoshanna challenges us to let go of fantasies, expectations, fears and anticipation so we can be fully present to life. Her wisdom is genuine and deeply considered. Her book is well worth reading.”
--Spiritual Parenting [for Zen Miracles]

"If you are looking for a way to have happiness and still live in this world, you have come to the right book. Rarely do eloquent prose, gems of quotes, simple wisdom, and practical exercises come in one book: Zen Miracles offers all of these and more. Whatever your spiritual orientation, this is a book you will refer to for years to come."
--Lee Jampolsky, Ph.D.
author of Healing Together, Healing the Addictive Mind, and The Art of Trust

"This wonderful book brings East and West – and ancient and modern worlds – together and provides profound wisdom and guidance for anyone struggling with stress, anxiety, anger, fear or loneliness. Beautifully written, funny, warm and filled with unusual, wonderful exercises. A real miracle."
--Rabbi Gary Moskowitz
Director of the Institute for Violence Prevention

"A healing journey into the inner conflicts and contradictions that separate spirit from self."
--Armand DiMele,
the DiMele Center for Psychotherapy

"Dr. Brenda Shoshanna is a versatile, creative, warm and truly excellent teacher."
--Rabbi Joseph Gelberman
founder of the Interfaith Seminary and Director of the All Faith Seminary

"Zen Miracles is a book that is invaluable for anyone seeking to bring a profound, yet genuinely joyous experience to life. Brenda Shoshanna explores the spiritual and therapeutic aspects of Zen practice in a way that is acceptable to anyone no matter what their faith, philosophy or religious beliefs. With her warm and compassionate style she exhibits the unique ability to explain even the most difficult ideas in understandable terms. Her approach is readily accessible and applicable to even the most mundane of activities. This book is a must for anyone seeking the secrets for attaining a balanced life and true peace of mind."
--Lewis Harrison
Director of the Academy of Natural Healing

"Zen Miracles is an inviting and inspiring message for those looking for a more simple and powerful way to enhance their lives and for those who want to integrate a practical way of peace in today's distorted and increasingly violent world."
--Bob Goff
