About Our Teacher Danny Waxman
Mr. Dan Waxman is a layman Soto-Zen teacher. He is an indoor disciple of the Zen-teacher Prof. Masunaga Reiho. He went to Japan in 1958, and there learned, Zen, Jodo, and Ninjutsu, for 13 years, between the years 1958-1984. He was born in 1936 and has three children. He also holds 6th Dan degree from the Kodokan Judo institute and a 15th Dan in Bujinkan Ninjutsu.
Since September 1994, he has been giving regulars weekly Zen lessons in Tel-Aviv area. In our Zen meetings, we sit Zazen, do Kinhin, and then Sensei reads from the writing of Dogen Zenji or from his teacher's writings, and answers the student's questions. Afterwards we enjoy drinking tea and eating cake together, and the session ends.
For current time and places of Zazen and Budo lessons please refer to the learning Zen in Israel.
