I'm a Zen priest, who brings Zen into the 21st century. I teach Zen and mindfulness practices with cognitive and neuroscience. My travels and talks take me to the likes of MIT, Brown University, Mind & Life Institute, and TED x Kyoto. I hope that the message that I put forth in these talks can find fertile ground and help change peoples lives.
