In this blog I share the experience I’m living during my journey going deep Zen and Yoga pratice. Internal and external travel, counted by means of writing and drawing.
The beginning was in 2013 when I went to Los Angeles, where I stayed a few days at the Zen Center (ZCLA), which is where my master, the Monja Coen, met Zen. From there, I went to Yokoji Zen Monastery Mountan Center (ZMC), where I spent three months. Still in California visited Sweetwater Zen Center (SWZC) in San Diego, City Center and Green Gulch of the San Francisco Zen Center (SFZC). Then I went to Mexico where I spent three months living in a school of Kundalini Yoga in Guadalajara and also visited two centers zen in Mexico City.
In January 2014 I went to Green Gulch where I attended the Intensive Practice Period and from there went to New York, where I visited the Zen Mountain Monastery (ZMM), which is in the northern state in the mountains. There participated in an art and Zen workshop and then I got 10 days at the Zen Center of New York City (ZMNYC).
In March 2014 I returned to Brazil to take care of some matters, to see my family and friends, and to practice again with my Brazilian Sangha in ZendoBrasil.
In August 2014 I returned to the San Francisco Zen Center for a period of nine months. In May 2015 I spent a month in Tassajara, a Zen Center in a valley near Carmel and now, in JuneI am in Mexico, beginning my journey to Brazil but without day of arrival and open to the opportunities that arise along the way.
