Dr Joe Parent of Zen Golf on Walking Meditation & Fred’s Adventure to Japan | #865


865: Host Fred Greene has just returned from a 2 week – 5 city, vacation/adventure in Japan. During their time in Kyoto, the group met and meditated with Zen Buddhist Monk Obayashi at Temple Senkoji. When the topic of sitting vs moving/walking meditation was brought up, Monk Obayashi mentioned that he has read Zen Golf by Dr Joe Parent. Immediately upon his return, Fred shared the clip with Dr Parent who wanted to discuss it on this episode.

This is the complete interview, but includes extra photos and video of the Monk and Fred’s adventure.
Fred also fulfilled another goal in Japan by going to a baseball game and trading his SF Giants for a Tokyo Giants hat.
