Additional Information

The Venerable Subul Sunim is Head Teacher of the International Seon Center at Dongguk University in Seoul, Korea, and abbot of Beomeosa Temple of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism, the principal Buddhist denomination in Korea.

Zen Master Subul Sunim teaches a uniquely Korean Buddhist style of “Zen questioning meditation” (Kanhwa Sŏn) which explores the deepest recesses of one’s personal identity and sense of self.

This type of meditation, which has been taught in Korea for over 800 years, has some similarities to the kōan practice of Japanese Zen, but it developed in Korea centuries earlier. This way of practice was traditionally taught only to monks sequestered for years in full-time meditation.

In this talk, Subul Sunim will explain his approach to “questioning meditation” and discuss his successes in adapting it to the needs of laypeople in modern secular society.
