My name is Andre Doshim Halaw. I am a Zen monk and teacher in the Five Mountain Zen Order, an independent school in the lineage of Zen Master Seung Sahn. I am also the guiding teacher of the Original Mind Zen Sangha, which meets in Princeton, NJ. I practiced in the Japanese Soto and Harada-Yasutani lineages for several years before finding my home in the FMZO. I received inka (independent teaching authorization) from Zen Master Wonji Dharma (Paul Lynch) in November, 2012.
I'm married, have two young children, and teach high school English in central New Jersey. I'm also an aspiring author. My favorite Buddhist teachers include Seung Sahn, Mazu, Chinul, Zongmi, and of course, the Buddha himself. Other teachers I greatly admire are Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Papaji, and Gangaji.
I am the author of two books, "Brand-Name Zen" and "Neti-Neti Meditation," both available on Amazon @ http://tinyurl.com/Andresbooks.
