"Enlightenment Therapy"

It's a couple of years old, but I thought it was a very interesting piece then and still do -- "Enlightenment Therapy," the tale of a Zen teacher who acknowledged and then attempted to deal with the demons he had once so cunningly disguised.

I always thought Lou Nordstrom was a nice guy when I met him first at Dai Bosatsu monastery. I quit the place, but he didn't, at least not while I was there. The article made me think that not only was he a nice guy -- he was also a guy with honest-to-goodness balls.

I never did find an e-mail address that would allow me to thank him and I looked pretty hard. Anyway, Lou has my thanks.
