Zen and the Way of Making a Difference
It was an idea that wouldn’t let go: how to change how change happens? Ginny Whitelaw knew from her physics training that change always happens through resonance. She knew from her Zen training that we can change how we resonate. The idea of a book started gnawing on her, but she had no time to write it. Then two trips cancelled in one month; with several weeks freed up, she took the hint. Writing began, repeated daily, and Resonate emerged.
Through stories, examples and practices, you’ll discover:
- how resonance underlies all change
- how you can become a more resonate being
- how to apply resonance to everything that matters in your life
From strengthening your relationships to realizing goals and dreams, to large-scale change, how you resonate is how you make a difference. This book is your guide.

Whitelaw Roshi is a scientist at heart. She likes her Zen to be palpable and practical. So when she talks resonance, she doesn’t open her mouth unless she is already resonating with all that surrounds her. You either feel it, and the lesson sinks in. Or you don’t feel it, and go back to the Zazen cushion until you do.
