Jonathan began practicing Zen Meditation in 1980 in Berkeley California.   He lived and practiced in the Empty Gate Zen Center for 8 years.  After sitting a 90-day meditation retreat in Korea he became a novice monk, returned to the US and lived the next 4 years at the Providence Zen Temple in Cumberland Rhode Island.

Meditation is a quest of self-discovery, it takes faith, courage and determination, it opens your heart and allows you to see you as you really are, this is the root of compassion.
