Josh Baran (Author) If you think enlightenment requires decades of spiritual practice and is reserved only for the chosen few, think again. Josh Baran shows readers that nirvana is staring them in the face. Baran has collected the quintessential teachings, both ancient and modern, from such notables as Rumi; Ram Das; Buddha; Jack Kornfield; Byron Katie; Pema Chodron, and Eckhart Tolle.
The Tao of Now draws wisdom from history's greatest mystical thinkers to provide direction for the spiritual journey. In addition to the wisdom of these teachers, Baran, a former Zen monk and contributor to Tricycle: The Buddhist Review, offers his own inspirational commentary on experiencing nirvana.
