White Collar Zen

Steven Heine

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the four steps that build a successful Encounter. The steps are a template for spontaneous yet deliberate behavior that integrates and coordinates inner reality, or the levels of consciousness, by using words and silence effectively to refashion intractable institutional structure. Step 1 involves feeling—reckoning with a crisis in structure; Step 2 involves speaking—using words creatively within structure; Step 3 involves thinking—silence as a tool for strategic planning. The fourth step is addressed in the next chapter.

Keywords:   Zen, Buddhism, Encounter, inner reality, consciousness, feeling, speaking, thinking
