Here’s our video on YouTube.

In this one we talk to the Chan/Zen Meditation teacher, author, and, all around good guy, Daniel Scharpenburg. We talk to him about his latest book, his simplistic break down of Zen, and, even a bit about what it’s like to make it as a meditation teacher. Don’t miss it!
