Zen Mind, Feline Mind: The existential and practical answers that cats refuse to share with us

A conversation with Chuck the Monk about Zen and cats, introducing our book:

Chuck The Monk – Empty Fun: Catlike daily wisdom and the quest for the feline Self.

Robert Harper Books. 6216 Rhode Island Ave. Riverdale Park MD. 301-927-1963

Alley Cat Rescue will be present with kittens for adoption






Egocentric for some, yet deep spiritual gurus for others, cats walk back and forth on the fence between illuminated and mundane meadows. Chuck is a very curious cat looking for answers both in science and spirituality. Join this Buddhist cat in his battle of nature vs nurture and discover the deep and silly secrets these furry sentient beings have been keeping from us.


Speaker Carlos Valencia (neuroscientist and Zen monk) is the co-creator and writer of Chuck The Monk. The book compiles the first year of weekly strips, and was printed in DC with crowdfunding support. A percentage of the book sales is donated every month to the NGO School for Life (Colombia/Germany).
