We're on YouTube!

What is Zen? What is satori? How does one do zazen (sitting Zen)? Why are people so confused about what is real? Jisho Matsumoto addresses these questions in our first video!

This is our first video, and we will put more up slowly, as we improve our video making and editing skills :)

While you could skip to the topic you're most interested in, we recommend starting from the beginning, since the Zen that Jisho-san points out is different from what the vast majority of Zen teachers say Zen is. Can you tell the difference?
