Daizan Skinner (mindfulness)

Daizan Skinner

Zen Master Daizan Skinner is the first Englishman to go to Japan and become a Roshi or Zen Master in the rigorous Rinzai tradition of Zen. About twenty years ago, recognising that a rich life was about more than climbing the corporate ladder, he gave up a promising career as a scientist in the pharmaceuticals industry, sold his house, gave all the money away and entered a Zen monastery.

With over twenty-five years of experience in Zen and more than a decade of experience in teaching meditation, Daizan Roshi knows first-hand the value of this work and is more than qualified to take you through the process of learning how to pass it on to others.
