Introduction to Zen

The three free videos introducing you to a Zen monk

functioning moment-to-moment in the modern world.


We live in extremely challenging times. Every day we read the news, there seems to be some dire new estimation of our social and planetary condition. Now, more than ever, it is important for human beings to “Wake up”.

It can seem especially challenging to find clarity, stability, and wisdom for living fully in this world. So many sources of data and information, so many obligations and interruptions. Hyon Gak Sunim is known, the world over, for his uncanny ability to convey the teachings of Zen in a way that is crystal clear, engaging, relevant to today’s issues and conditions, and often irreverently funny.

The ancient teachings come nearer to your lived experience of life in the modern world when this slightly dangerous monk opens his mouth to explain things. Are you ready for the ride down the Path to your True Self?

Sunim introduces the course in these four simple introductions to what we will all experience together.

"At the moment of your death, even having 100 PhDs cannot help you.”

- Zen Master Seung Sahn (1927-2004)

In this Free Course, “Introduction to Zen”, you will get 3 videos (plus one bonus video) introducing you to Sunim’s personal story and his path — your path — straight to the heart of Zen.
