In this talk we will consider briefly some of the popular myths regarding Buddhism and Zen in the US, describe methods of Zen practice in the development of mindfulness, and examine how they can change our orientation toward the ways we care for ourselves and others.
Bio: Rev. Richard Daiko Smykla is a Zen Buddhist priest currently serving the Jizo-an Zen Community in Cherry Hill, NJ. He holds a degree in Biology from Stockton University and has worked as a biochemist in various labs for 30 years. A lifelong skeptic, he finds Zen practice to complement the inquiries of science and to provide a restoration of faith in this human journey. Father to two daughters, he and his wife Cindy enjoy exploring our natural environment in hikes and kayaking with their wonder-dog Zara.
