Short quote from our Shih Tzu Zen Master:

“ I am not special, not dogmatic, do not walk on water, don’t take myself too seriously, make mistakes all the times and enjoy wonderful questions and challenges from students so I can learn from them. My job and joy is to try to help others with their struggles the best I can through the practice of meditation and the teaching of Zen Buddhism philosophy”.

As you may know Zen Buddhism is not based on faith per-se, doctrines, dogmas or scriptures but rather on strong spiritual practice based on common sense, down to earth existential philosophy designed to alleviate suffering from self and mainly to others. We do not preach a so called divine truth but just reality and facts and we are not looking to promote our teachings.

Everyone is welcome ...
