Much of my current practice is translating Buddhism to make it accessible to the world of work. In addition, Shusterman conceives somaesthetics as on the body-mind problem and the roots of somaesthetics. This establishes a philosophical basis for the Zen method of mind training, enabling the exploration of connections between Zen, philosophy of mind, cognitive science, and other areas. But Zen itself is not As students of ancient Zen philosophy, we came to America with practically nothing. As noted earlier, somaesthetics is informed by Shusterman's training in and practice of the Feldenkrais Method. Great vehicle refers to the many Upaya ( skillful methods) contained within this tradition. Initially Zen training was for experienced older people who were trying to free themselves from the fetters of conventional thinking instilled by the rigid dictates of Confucian rules. Three disciplines – Pragmatist philosophy, Feldenkrais method, and Zen meditation – influenced Shusterman's thoughts on the body's role in aesthetic perception and in removing the conditioning that society inflicts on us through our bodies. The first two chapters of this book: The Philosophy of Tao & The Origins of Buddhism are a wonderfully realized succinct overview of these subjects both elegant and comprehensive. And, when we look at Buddhist teachings, especially Zen teachings, we see the use of paradox as a core training method. The training methods of Zen were discovered by the Buddhist Kungfu Masters in the ancient Shaolin Temple in China.
