New yet Old yet Young

Post by epoche » Thu Jan 04, 2018 4:41 am

Dear all,

Having a "long-term" interest in all things Zen/Chan/Seon (and Thien! despite no first-hand experience), I'm happy to find this forum after minimal participation and maximal lurking on ZFI (as well as Dha[r/m]maWheel) for the past decade or so. For the past 12 years (still in my 20s) I've been a student of Buddhism and have spent a fair amount of time in monastic residence (primarily Taiwan, S.Korea, and Thailand but also Japan, Singapore, and Malaysia) as a layperson. Currently working on a second M.A. and practicing minimalistic living at a particular Chan monastery in the Western hemisphere. The name "epoche" (ep-o-kay) I borrowed from reading Husserl and phenomenology, complementary (I feel) to the 禪 approach.

Welcome! Your moniker rang a bell for me as i’m familiar with Jay Garfield’s essay, Śūnyatā and Epoche. Interesting bio too!
