Shijun Heather Martin has been practicing Soto Zen meditation at the San Antonio Zen Center since before it existed, and the Austin and Houston Zen Centers even longer. She received dharma entrustment as a lay Zen teacher from Rev. Colin Gipson earlier this year. In addition to private practice as a registered dietitian, she’s also the Candy Corn Science Correspondent for the Today Show’s Food section. She encourages you to try out this Zen thing, and to consider incorporating breathing, eating, and sleeping into your busy schedule.

A talk about the Lotus Sutra in daily life, especially nutrition.
