ZEN PEACEMAKER ORDER

I began my Zen study with Roshi Bernie Glassman, and his teacher Taizan Maezumi Roshi, in 1985. Nine years later Bernie founded the Zen Peacemaker Order, and I maintain my connection to them today. If you’re interested in learning about Engaged Buddhism this is a good place to start.

BLACK MOUNTAIN ZEN CENTER

In Belfast, N. Ireland

I met Roshi Paul Haller in 1995 and three years later, after the Belfast Peace Agreements were established, we began offering meditation retreats in Belfast. This led to the establishment of the Black Mountain Zen Centre where I am still a board member.
