Ken Kushner discusses “Why there is suffering in life,” and how his 40 year practice with Zen restores the healer.


Ken Kushner, Psy.D. has practiced for 40 years as a clinical psychologist and professor at the University of Wisconsin.  He is a Zen priest and an author.  Zen is one of the most popular spiritual practices that Ken helps us understand.  It is more than mindfulness and the calm app but more concerned with the question - "What is the nature of suffering and how do we cope?"  One of Ken's wellness opportunities is with HEAL that helps medical practitioners with burnout and resilience. He discusses the breathing practice of Hara https://haradevelopment.org  . His martial arts will guide this healing stories podcast to understand a way to not run away but face our lives.  A special sound can be explored on his website with the video of Honda Roshi playing the shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute). Two websites that explain Ken's teachings and technique can be found at https://www.wisconsinzen.org/ken-kushner
