Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind
Cliff’s mindfulness and meditation practice began while attending Grinnell College in the 70’s. In the 1980’s he was a meditation instructor under the guidance of Dainin Katagiri Roshi at the Minnesota Zen Center. In 1989 he moved to Boulder, Colorado, which enabled him to meet and practice with a wide variety of leading meditation teachers at Naropa University. Cliff has trained with Jon Kabat-Zinn in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction. In 1994 he was ordained as a Buddhist monk by Shoken Winecoff Roshi, Abbot of Ryumonji Zen Monastery and received Dharma Transmission from him in 2010. He is certified as a Soto Zen Dharma Teacher in the US and Japan.
