Master Zhenzan Dao

 

Master Zhenzan Dao, the founder of the practice tradition of MogaDao, is a MogaDao Daoist monk. They live deep in the Jemez Mountains of New Mexico, in a small cabin—in cliff-top disposition and structure remarkably like the cabin depicted on The MogaDao Monastic Path page of this website—where they follow a monastic schedule of training in all five of the MogaDao disciplines, the manual labor of rustic husbandry, meditation and prayer, religious study, and the writing of poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction on subjects pertaining to aesthetics, Daoism, and human flourishing. They are also a horse trainer, farrier, and a blacksmith.
