This listing is an acknowledgement of completion by these practitioners of the initial 18 days of training in the use of the Big Mind Process with Genpo Roshi, its founder and creator, and that they are committed to remain aligned with Roshi through continued training. Some of them have also studied extensively with him, engaged in years of Zen study as well as Big Mind Big Heart retreats, and continued to demonstrate a commitment to the ongoing evolution of the Big Mind Big Heart Process. For those interested in studying and learning more about themselves through the use of Big Mind, we recommend Roshi’s personal live teachings and the volumes of DVDs (which can be found under the Store tab on this website), as well as other teachings on this site.
