Samu is a word from Japanese Zen Buddhism. It refers to physical work, done mindfully as a spiritual practice and might include our everyday activities such as cleaning, cooking or creating. Samu is a way to be united and present with what we are doing. In modern terms, one could relate it to 'being in the zone'
