Does The Wizard of Oz touch a spiritual chord in each one of us because it has a certain Zen to it? Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, is clearly a Zen Master. She sets Dorothy on the Yellow Brick Road to spiritual enlightenment. When Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion let go of their conscious yearning and free their minds to function spontaneously and inharmony with the cosmos, brains, heart, and courage flow easily and effortlessly. Ultimately, Dorothy attains satori, the Zen experience of "awakening." She finds her true Self, her higher consciousness, her ultimate Oneness with the cosmos--and her home.

Review:

"Green excavates more meaning from the beloved movie than five decades of kids and parents ever found. This is a delightful book whose illustrations by Cathy Pavia are stills from the movie transformed into Japanese wood block prints." -- Barbara Ardinger, Ph.D., Whole Life Times, February 1999

"In this spiffy little book, [Joey Green] mines the Zen insights in one of the most popular movies of all time--'The Wizard of Oz.'" -- Frederic Brussat, www.spiritualrx.com, January 15, 1999

"This charming book will have you scrutinizing 'The Wizard of Oz' for the profound messages you missed in previous viewings." -- Entertainment News & Views, December 11, 1998

"Versatile writer Joey Green has done it again with 'The Zen of Oz.'" -- Social Studies, December 19, 1998
