In this episode we had the honor of talking with Shoukei Matsumoto, Japanese Zen Buddhist monk, who is the author of the life-changing book "A Monk's Guide to a Clean House and Mind", which has been translated into 18 different languages.

Shoukei argues that cleaning is not just about removing dirt but a practice to stay in the present, a practice of cultivating the mind and heart.
