What we're about

Zen Master Genpo Roshi will be teaching and sharing the Big Mind Process in Salt Lake City at various times, this is an opportunity for those interested in Zen and the Big Mind process to work directly with the creator and developer of the Big Mind process. "For more than 40 years my deepest motivation has been to assist others to awaken to our true nature, to get to the root of suffering and to realize our capacity as aware and responsible human beings. I trust and encourage them to bring that profound and life-transforming experience into the world in their own unique ways, according to their particular gifts, passions and circumstances."
