living a life of compassion that manifests that awakening (Embodying the Way).

Sophia expresses the Western World Wisdom; knowing beyond intellectual knowledge with connotations of a nurturing, ordering, feminine ground of Being; the Core of our Being.

Zazen is sitting Zen, the formal practice
of Zen or Zen meditation.
