Zazen info[edit]

I removed the following text from the article as it seems subjective and I didn't have access to the sources. If someone wants to word it better and add references, go for it. Sweet kate (talk) 14:58, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Zen practice with Kosho Uchiyama was not what Braverman expected, which in his mind would entail much dialogue and "special experience". Instead, it was essentially many hours of intense zazen practice. Uchiyama wasn't one for words, and was even less interested in formality and ritual. Much of this experience has been recorded in Braverman's book, Living and Dying in Zazen (Weatherhill, 2003).
