We all engage in relationship. Successful relationship give heart, joy, passion and meaning to our lives, and it always involves the charged, dynamic tension between the Masculine and the Feminine.

The Masculine and Feminine, in their shadow and light forms, are principles at play in love and sex, economy and politics, ecology and spirituality, and their dance brings depth to any relationship.

The most profitable relationship of all is that between a spiritual teacher and his students – we call that a Sacred Relationship or Embodied Spirituality™. Such relationships include a wide variety of interactions: from the teacher’s graceful acceptance of a dana donation to his passionate, life-giving embrace.

In the context of formal Zen training this attraction manifests in a myriad different forms: from no-strings-attached quickies in the dokusan room to committed affairs that can lead to Dharma Transmission.

In his new book, Zen Flesh Zen Boner, charismatic Zen teacher Dick Eido Ohlzon outlines the principles of embodied spirituality. Drawing on first-hand experiences as well as the examples of other prominent North American Zen teachers, this is a lucid, engaging and titillating introduction to a subject little understood in the postmodern West.

Fully committed to the Lay Bodhisattva’s way of life, Dick is an accomplished tattoo artist and a skilled auto mechanic.
