Daizan Skinner (zen)

Julian Daizan Skinner Roshi, our teacher in the UK.

Julian Daizan Skinner is the first Englishman to go to Japan and become a Roshi or Zen Master in the rigorous Rinzai tradition of Zen. Over thirty years ago, 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.

Over many years of strict training, in Japan and the west, Daizan Roshi recieved Dharma Transmission and permission to teach in both the Rinzai and Soto lineages of Zen, recieving inka from the late Shinzan Miyamae Roshi of Gyokuryuji. He has also undergone training as an enlightenment intensive master with Lawrence Noyes, leading student of the creator of enlightenment intensives, Charles Berner.
