Down to Earth. Get Real Zen

The real thing. These guys get Buddhism and definitely don't take themselves too seriously. Sooooo refreshing in a landscape full of sincere folks that seem to take themselves too seriously.. They also have a website where anyone can join the conversation. My Roshi died a few years back, and I am finding it very hard to form another attachment. Maybe this group is the next growth step in Buddhism. All the teaching with lots of commom sense.

A little laugh and a little Zen

I appreciate this Podcast. Life is so serious and it seems like it gets more so each day..sometimes it’s nice to sit back, have a brief laugh about it all, and then learn some Zen perspective along the way. Each episode has a laughing point and a lesson. These guys make my day better!
