It is not every day I get the Honor and Privilege to work with one of the few living Zen Masters of our time, Genro Xuan Lou, Laoshi and is why their New Book Release; “Find The Seeker!: The pathless path to fulfillment and happiness” is so special to share and to be working with both authors! Here is more about them and about their new book …
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Find the Seeker! with the subtitle “The pathless path to fulfillment and happiness”, based on the tried and tested wisdom of a living Master and enlightened ones throughout the ages, accompanies us on a life-changing inner pilgrimage.
Find the Seeker! is a powerful, straight-talking wake-up call to people of all faiths and confessions, holding up a mirror to our worldly existence, suffering and the intricate workings of the ego. Immensely uplifting and rewarding, the book serves as a traveling companion and guide, enticing readers with a vision of what we really are -which can only be directly experienced – by helping us unfold our true nature and reboot our spiritual search so that we can abide in the one Self. In this way, seekers become finders, and we can enjoy the bliss and lightness of Being that is inherently ours.

After returning to Europe, Genro spent decades as a therapist and business consultant and has been heading the Qi Gong Master School in Austria for many years, practicing in accordance with the Wuhan-Yangsheng style.
Genro Laoshi has lectured at universities, appeared on TV, held seminars on a variety of spiritual and self-help topics, taught Qi Gong courses and published articles and books on meditation, Zen, motivation and communication, storytelling, body-reading, sexual Kung-Fu, autohypnosis and many more topics.

His meditation-imparted experiences and the Dharma transmission from Genro have qualified him to be a teacher of Zen. He humbly reveals his deep insights and awareness of the spiritual cosmos as he wanders along the pathless path with his Zen Master.

• The strength of the book is its focus on the spiritual dimension underlying Existence
which all people share, and its picking people up where they are in a compassionate
and understandable manner. At the same time, it is not a wishy-washy
quick fix or esoteric porridge pandering to those who want a spiritual baby rattle.
• The book is in stark contrast to the majority of books which indulge in superficial
descriptions or sayings and provide seemingly “precise” instructions, lists of goals
or steps to take which entrap people into continuing their dependency on intermediaries
and religious institutions, or prolonging the self-delusion of being less
than they really are. It does not slowly work its way to a conclusion but continually
repeats key messages to hammer away at our conventional beliefs.
• The authors aim to act as facilitators, hoping it will fall on fertile ground. Speaking
with authority and a sense of urgency, and continuously hammering away at our
conventional belief systems, they hope to transform the seemingly complicated
path of so many seekers into the realization that we already are what we are
