Zen-Ken-Sho Lecture and Demonstration By So’zan Miller Roshi
Please join us 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).
