Chris Tyler - Part 1 of 3 - A carpenter becomes a Zen monk for a year

January 3, 2020


I have edited my interview with Chris Tyler into three installments.

In part 1 we meet Chris. After being a carpenter for 15 years he is thinking about becoming a monk in a Zen monastery.
We discover what its like to seat for hours practicing mindfulness. Chris shares moments of doubt and awakening when what he calls a 'voice,' helps him move forward with his new life.

Listen to part 2 to hear Chris talk about his experience working with victims of domestic violence.

He wants to help men step out of a cycle of trauma and abusive behaviors.

This conversation brings us on the topic of masculinity.
