Henry Shukman teaches mindfulness and awakening practices to a wide range of students from all traditions and walks of life. Henry is an appointed teacher in the Sanbo Zen lineage, and is the Guiding Teacher of Mountain Cloud Zen Center. Previous to this, Henry had a career as an award-winning author and poet.
