BFFE | docu: Zen and the West – Finding Peace in Troubled Times

Posted on sep 9, 2019

Follow along as we travel to Canada, Japan, The Philippines, Europe and the U.S.A., visiting Zen Masters, scientists, politicians, Christians, atheists, and celebrities exploring the questions: What is Zen? What is Awakening/Enlightenment? Is Zen a Religion? How does Science view Zen? What does Awakening look like in everyday life? This feature documentary looks at these questions in the context of a social landscape marked by separation and divisive rhetoric. – bffe.eu
