Home » Zen-Ken-Sho Public Lecture and Demonstration By So’zan Miller Roshi
Please join us in November as we host Rev. So'zan Miller Roshi (First Abbot of Daiyuzenji) as he shares his view on Zen-Ken-Sho.
Zen-Ken-Sho is a principle set forth by Omori Sogen, who became well known for this unique approach to Zen practice, integrating insights from martial and fine arts training with traditional Zen methods as a way to create a balanced life. This approach has been described as a unity of Zen, Ken ("sword," referring to martial arts or physical culture), and Sho ("brush," referring to calligraphy or fine arts).
