In the last fifty years Zen has spread rapidly and far beyond Japan to affect every facet of western culture. Zen centers and zen retreats have sprung up throughout America and Europe and enthusiasts in the west far outnumber Japan. Yet what do we know about zen practice in Japan today? When Dogen, the founder of Soto Zen, brought Zen to Japan from China 800 years ago, it quickly took root and became an integral part of Japanese life. The Zen Mind is a fascinating journey across Japan to explore zen in its natural habitat. - Description of the film The Zen Mind created by Jon Braeley.
