Seiyu has been practicing Soto Zen Buddhism in the lineage of Shunryu Suzuki-roshi since 1986. Taking Shukke Tokudo in 2008 from Jakusho Kwong-roshi, he continues to practice and share the Dharma as nothing special and live life simply “as it is”. He helps facilitate the weekly Monday night study group at ASZC that is open to people new to Zen and other practitioners wanting to share Buddhist teachings in Sangha dialogue through the focus of various contemporary Zen texts. He also hosts a Wednesday night Zazen meditation group in his home in Marietta.
