Mondo Zen/Koan Dialogue & Daisan


“The Gateless Gate”

The Mondo Zen Koan Dialogue (Koan-enigmatic question in which the answer must be experienced beyond the ‘thinking’ mind) process provides an opportunity to experience a ‘deep dive’ into philosophical re-orientation (you are more than your thoughts, emotions, and stories), neuro-linguistic reprogramming (new language for an Awakened perspective), integration of the self-referencing ego mind (me…me…me) with the Clear Deep Heart/Mind (seat of consciousness, Soul, Source, etc.)…allowing for wise compassionate responses and interactions in the world. This transformative and Enlightening process can be done one-on-one or in a group setting and typically will be conducted over 1 to 3 two to three hour sessions (time vastly varies depending on the participant).



Daisan is a private interview with a Zen Teacher.  This can be done at the yoga studio or a setting that you feel most comfortable.  Daisan discussions are extremely confidential and will not be discussed with anyone else and is advised that you refrain from sharing the details of the session as well.  This practice recommendation is necessary to maintain the purity of intention and privacy of the individual as well as the teacher/priest.
