Author Event with Les Kaye at Los Altos Library

At 7pm on May 2 at the Los Altos Library, local author and Zen monk Les Kaye discusses his most recent book. A Sense of Something Greater goes deeper than the current mindfulness trend, into the heart of Zen practice. For Les Kaye, Zen is more than awareness–it’s also “the continued determination to be authentic in relationships, to create meaningful, intimate, intentional bonds with people, things, and the environment.” Kaye’s teachings are paired with interviews with current tech employees and Zen practitioners, conducted by journalist Teresa Bouza. A Sense of Something Greater is an essential book for business leaders, meditators, and Zen practitioners alike. 

In this event, the author will review and discuss selected excerpts from his book, exploring the ways that Zen practice brings meaning and authenticity to pressure-packed lives of work and family, how it teaches us to respond to situations in thoughtful, creative and caring ways, increasing confidence, wisdom, and intuition that complement the modern world’s need for logic and analytical judgments. They will answer questions from the audience and sign books.

Les Kaye worked for IBM in engineering, sales, and management for over 30 years. He started Zen practice in 1966 and is teacher at Kannon Do Zen Center in Silicon Valley. His first book, Zen at Work, is a classic in its own right.
