Finding Peace After War w/ Claude Anshin (Ep 137)

Published by: janean strong on 01-09-2022

At 17, Claude AnShin enlisted in the US Army and served in the Vietnam War. After battling severe post-traumatic stress, isolation, and addiction, he discovered Buddhist practice and began intensive training and study. In 1995 he was fully ordained as a Zen Buddhist monk in the Japanese Soto Zen tradition. Claude  has dedicated his life to addressing the causes and consequences of violence, war, and suffering in individuals, families, and societies. Addressing our human suffering and how to make peace with our unpeacefulness through an active meditation practice teaches us that the human mind can learn to live in a different relationship with suffering and through that, peace is possible. 

An honest raw insightful process of discovery of suffering leads to healing and transformation.
