Product Description


Denis Kelly s life is part Hunter S. Thompson, part Timothy Leary, and part Eckart Tolle. From his beginnings in an abusive and alcoholic home in Wisconsin to becoming a major force in the counterculture movement, and then from a life on the run and in prison to a life in a monastery and in service, it is as entertaining as it is inspirational. A Heart Blown Open chronicles the life and teachings of Zen master Jun Po Denis Kelly Roshi as he worked to integrate hard-won wisdom into his dynamic life. Jun Po is founder of the internationally recognised Hollow Bones order of the American Rinzai Zen tradition and creator of Mondo Zen, a unique contribution to a 1,500-year-old wisdom lineage that unites emotional maturity and spiritual awareness, creating a powerful synthesis of Eastern contemplative wisdom and Western psychological insight. Extraordinary for their playfulness, depravity, and liberating insight, Jun Po s life events swirl together to underscore and illuminate the environment from which one of the most controversial masters of the American Zen scene has emerged.
