Emotional Freedom for the Modern Seeker
An Ancient Science of Mind Receives an Upgrade

“This is the story of our time... an absolute must-read for
anyone with even a passing interest in human evolution...”
— Ken Wilber, author of Integral Spirituality

"This is the legendary story of an inspiring teacher that
mirrors the journey of many contemporary Western seekers.”
— Alex Grey, artist and author of Transfigurations

DENIS KELLY'S LIFE IS PART HUNTER S. THOMPSON, PART TIMOTHY LEARY, AND PART ECKHART TOLLE.

Mondo Zen, an updated form of Rinzai Zen (the “Zen of the Samurai”), was developed by Denis Kelly, whose Dharma name (spiritual name) is Jun Po Roshi. This is the story of his life, and how he worked to integrate the hard-won wisdom of a life of playfulness, depravity, loss, and liberating insight, leading to the creation of what what has been called the single greatest innovation in Zen in the last 500 years.
