Brad Warner is a Zen priest, author, blogger, and punk rock bass guitarist. While still playing hardcore punk, Brad became involved in Zen Buddhism. The realistic, no BS philosophy reminded him of the attitude the punks took towards music. He made it to Japan in 1993 where he began studying the philosophy with an iconoclastic rebel Zen Master named Gudo Nishijima. After a few years, Nishijima decided to make Brad his successor as a teacher of Zen.
Brad has authored several books including Sit Down and Shut Up in 2007. Yogamatic made a yoga mat based on the book and sent Alexandra Aitken to interview him. Brad shares how yoga has grounded his life and his overall Zen philosophy for life in the video below.Share this post:
