I'm interested in meditation and the learning about the eastern concept of mindfulness, which is different than what's taught by western teachers. I'm a graduate student in Bangkok doing research on the link between western psychology and Buddhism.
I'm one of the three discussion leaders of the Zen group. I studied Zen for 15 years at San Francisco Zen Centre, and have also been studying Theravada in Bangkok for several years. I'm also a poet and travel writer: go to joeshakarchi.com
