Nondual Teachings of LinJi with Shinzen Young

Host Michael Taft speaks with meditation master and neuroscience consultant Shinzen Young on the background and history of Zen Master LinJi (aka Rinzai, in Japanese), the meaning of his famous phrase “the authentic person,” various aspects of nonduality, an unpacking of LinJi’s Four-fold Analysis, as well as cessations, the current state of Shinzen’s research, using ultrasound to change the brain, and how to equanimize the biggest curveballs life can throw at you.

Shinzen Young is an American mindfulness teacher and neuroscience research consultant. His systematic approach to categorizing, adapting and teaching meditation, known as Unified Mindfulness, has resulted in collaborations with Harvard Medical School, Carnegie-Mellon University, and the University of Vermont in the burgeoning field of contemplative neuroscience.
