What is Mondo Zen? Mondo Zen™ is based on Japanese and Chinese Zen, updated for the 21st Century. Mondo Zen™ transcends the hierarchical/authoritarian, gender-biased and constraining monastic aspects of traditional Zen in favor of practical, experiential “in the world” engagement.
It utilizes the koan process, a series of questions designed to induce certain realizations. Each koan is like a brain teaser or puzzle that helps to train the mind to focus in different ways.
