Zen, not-Zen, non-Zen, Zen: Entering the Luminous Fog of Mindfulness Facilitation

Katto Garth Smelser took Jukai in 2019. He is a Navy veteran, worked with the U.S. Forest Service and is now at N.O.A.A., the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Last year he began mindfulness training through the Engaged Mindfulness Institute (EMI), formerly Peacemaker Institute, founded in 2001 by Fleet Maull and Vita Pires.

The Institute delivers trainings developed from a rich tradition of spiritually grounded, contemplative and mindfulness-based peace and social change work, as well as the latest developments in neuroscience-based leadership training.
