Episode Info

Episode Info: Alex followed his girlfriend and her friend into a new age bookstore (someplace he wouldn’t normally be caught dead in).  He felt called to pick up a book on Zen Buddhism and start reading.  He was amazed.     The author was talking about all the things he was dealing with in his life.  He thought he had it all (the job, the apartment, the girlfriend), but he was still unhappy.  He knew he needed more of this information, so he started to study and meditate.   Eventually he entered a Zen monastery.  He settled into the routine there, meditating, studying and running retreats with the other monks. After nearly 14 years, he felt pulled to leave the monastery and start a business so he could share what he had learned with a larger audience.     Listen to Alex’s story of how he became a monk, what he learned from the experience and how he is sharing that wisdom through his Zen life coaching business.
