Book Pays Tribute to Beloved Half Moon Bay Icon

Press release

By on Sat, July 30, 2011


Zenjo Press today announced the release of its new book, Peaceful Warrior: The Life of Ken Paul Lozada. Filled with beautiful photographs and sculpture dialogues, it explores the art and spirituality of the iconic creator of the gravity-defying tree sculptures standing guard at Main Street in Half Moon Bay, California.

Of those once drawn to Ken Paul Lozada's sculpture garden to get a closer look at pieces of wood he has given a new life with shiny, undulating lines, cavernous abysses, and chiseled squares, many found their initial interest giving way to a sense of wanting to know more about their creator. A biographical glimpse at the sculptor and author of The Seven Treasures of Life (as well as thousands of pages worth of soul messages), includes family photos spanning five geanerations.

A near-death experience after a car accident left Ken, who spent many years in an orphanage, with a new understanding about the gift of life which he has since sought to share with others--revealing his arboreal creations to be messengers about the sacred nature all humans possesses within. He has surrendered to complete honesty and openness, while becoming a conveyor of truth. His fragments of wood become symbols of restoration as these once-majestic trees that have been discarded get a new lease on life.
