About Zen

Zen training is offered under the guidance of the Center for the Way. This is an organization that offers training to people in Zen, fine arts and the martial arts. Shiohira Sensei founded this non-profit organization with the personal permission of the late Archbishop Tanouye Tenshin Rotaishi, who was Shiohira Sensei's Zen teacher. He was a Zen and martial arts master and was the Dharma successor of the late Omori Sogen Rotaishi, a well respected master of Zen, kendo and calligraphy in Japan. Shiohira Sensei also received personal instruction from Omori Sogen Rotaishi.


Calligraphy or Shodo (the way of the brush) is an integral part of fine art and Zen training.
