kris_tao_garden.jpg (3852 bytes) True knowledge cannot be imparted by words. The Zen mind, enlightened and disciplined, is able to rise above mere technique and go straight to the core of being...to reach the soul...the essence.

Kris co-founded the Zen School with the idea of restoring the spiritual aspect to a therapy other shiatsu schools were describing as a form of physiotherapy. While we do indeed pay attention to the physical aspect, we believe it is so much influenced by the way we feel that, if we can only help others access the deep well of healing-power that lies within each one of us, we can help sustain the wellness of our natural state in all dimensions: physical, energetic and spiritual.
