Alex ‘Kosei’ Reinke studies Zen under Julian Daizan Skinner Roshi in his South London Yugagyo dojo. For more information go to this homepage: www.zenways.org
In 2010 he has joined the Zen group of the Yugagyo Dojo and took his precepts as a lay monk, under leadership of Daizan Roshi, who is the long time student of 82 year old Shinzan Miyamae Roshi from Gyokuryuji Monastery in Gifu prefecture Japan.
Alex has finished the Zen meditation teacher training in May 2014 and aspires to become a Zen Junior teacher under guidance of Daizan Roshi.
It is needless to say that any study in the field of self realisation is an endless endeavour and Alex does not claim to have any profound understanding that would raise him above any individual human being. Even after 50 years of zen study and mediation and no matter how many glimpses of insight one might have gained it is certain that nothing has been reached in the end and another 50 years will most likely not change that fact. However to study and practice zen and meditation for however long, or intense, is certainly better than to do nothing to become a better human being, so here it is strongly recommended.
