Applied Zen Meditation & Core-Self Intelligence

Clarify the Great Matter of Life and Death.Embrace Vast Impermanance and Infinitely Wisdoming Moment.

As a Zen Master Teacher and Counselor specializing in Applied Meditation Therapy® and Core-Self Mindfulness, my mission is to assist individuals, couples, families, private enterprises, communities, and public institutions to actualize the farther reaches of human consciousness, peak embodiment, life fulfillment, and behavioral wisdom. It is my chosen task to continually research, study, and understand the ancient wisdom and embodied life knowledge of the past, to explore the relationship between the strategies of modern psychology and my immediate body wisdoming, and to disseminate the integration of my professional research, therapeutic practice, body wisdoming, and emergent life knowledge through public and private teaching, training, and counseling. Through this dissemination of knowledge and wisdoming, I hope to provide the practical education and skillful means so that human beings around the world can further enrich and enhance the quality of their daily life and relationships.

It is my vision and my passion to engage people of all ages, from differing cultural backgrounds, walks of life, and varying belief systems in a therapeutic process of self-wisdoming; an intimate body core wisdoming capable of actualizing and sustaining the highest levels of personal health, liberated consciousness, emotional intelligence, interpersonal synergy, spiritual enlightenment, joyful motivation, playful productivity, and peak performance.


1) Practicing excellence in teaching, mentoring, counseling, research, and public service.

2) Remaining open to emergent horizons in therapeutic, growth promoting, and methodological innovations.

3) Abiding by the highest standards of professional accountability and ethical conduct.

4) Working toward an optimal integration of our innate wisdoming, growing scientific knowledge, and basic human values.

5) Promoting, respecting and engaging individual, cultural, racial, religious and spiritual diversity.

6) Joyfully sustaining my lifelong vow to personal, interpersonal, professional, and spiritual growth.

7) Serving others with dedication, enthusiasm, caring, committment and passionate presence.

8) Directing my spiritual life force and wholeheartedness toward making a positive difference in people's lives.


I continue to actualize my vision and calling through my Zen counseling and training practice in Hawaii, my global video counseling, training, and consultation services, the international publication of my books and articles, and the continual growth and refinement of the Applied Meditation Psychology Institute. I also maintain and update a free public educational website at ZenDoctor.Com to benefit and enrich the lives and relationships of people worldwide. At Zendoctor.Com, I share my Zen teachings and my psychological insights on proactive healthcare, body core wisdoming, optimum wellness, creativity, intuition, interpersonal relationships, higher states of consciousness, spiritual growth, peak performance, and the ever deepening embodiment and evolution of Humanness.


In my professional calling, I focus on the
following therapeutic methodologies:

1) Training, education, consultation, and coaching in the somatic skills, mental postures, bodymind techniques, behavioral principles, and psychological strategies that constitute the empowering life practice of Applied Meditation Therapy ®.

2) Person-centered growth counseling to enhance biological core intimacy, passionate embodiment, dynamic inner stillness, and creative life transformation within individuals, their daily activities, behaviors, and interpersonal relationships;

3) Transpersonal counseling and consultation to actualize multidimensional perception, cognitive integration, emotional healing, inner peace, life wisdoming, and the continual growth and fulfillment of basic human goodness;
