Michael Sudduth

A Wayseeking mind is the first talk given by a Zen student and is the story of how we arrived on the cushion.  As Michael says,"Zen has colorfully and seamlessly sewn together the fabric of my entire spiritual and philosophical journey."  His talk begins with playing lead guitar in a heavy metal band in the 80's which was the inspiration to get a doctorate and to establish himself as a Christian Philosopher until a car wreck led to Hinduism and becoming a resident of Jikoji.  To understand how this all fits together, don't miss Michael's talk.
