Our teacher, Lawson Sachter-roshi and his wife, Sunya Kjolhede-roshi, are authors of an article published this month in tricycle magazine. It is a beautiful article about the connections between psychodynamics and Zen practice. Lawson-roshi is the sprititual director of the Clear Water Zen Center and is also a licensed psychotherapist with a private practice in Asheville, NC. For the past twenty-five years he has worked with short-term dynamic psychotherapy techniques, and has worked as a therapist with a wide range of clients, including many who practice meditation. Much of his personal and professional work has centered on the integration of Eastern and Western approaches to intrapsychic change. Lawson and Sunya are co-Abbots of the Windhorse Zen Community in Alexander, North Carolina.
