Shinzen Nvrmnd Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Shinzen Young is an American meditation teacher. He leads residential and phone-based meditation retreats for students interested in learning the Vipassana tradition of Buddhism. Shinzen was originally ordained in Japan as a monk in the Shingon tradition. He has studied and practiced extensively in other traditions, including Zen and Native American traditions.
A disappointed customer shared this in a review "Couldn't stand his "scientific" language. Instead of talking about meditation using scientific evidence, he uses scientific language and metaphors that obscure rather than illuminate to talk about meditation just for the sake of it. Not much meat here either, as far as I could see the chapter on mysticism, for example, could have been a whole lot more informative and fascinating). He might be an okay meditation teacher, but he's not right for me. Shinzen is not worth it".
