Jules Shuzen Harris, Sensei is the author of the article “Uprooting the Seeds of Anger” in the Summer 2012 issue of Tricycle. A dharma heir of Roshi Pat Enkyo O’Hara, Shuzen is a priest in the Soto Zen tradition, a member of the White Plum Asangha, the Zen Peacemakers Order, and the American Zen Teachers Association. He is also a practicing psychotherapist who fuses traditional Western methods with Zen teachings. He is the Vice Abbot of Soji Zen Center in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania—and has two black belts, in kendo and iaido, so look out!
I spoke with Shuzen on the topic of dealing with our anger on May 24th. As it happened, he had given a radio interview on a similar topic (but with a much better interviewer) not long before. It’s called “Resolving Anger in the Family,” and you can find it here, on the Soji Zen Center site.
