Zenworld is an authentic and thought-provoking account of one woman's journey back to her true nature and oneness with all of life. Kaisa Puhakka has always had a deep desire for connection with Being, whether it be through the great silences of the forests of her native Finland, or the inner workings of her own mind. This lifelong quest eventually leads her to the Mt. Baldy Zen Center in California, home for many decades to Roshi Kyozan Joshu Sasaki, a celebrated and highly unconventional Japanese Rinzai Zen master. Over a period of years spent in sesshin, she grapples with the koan of reconciling Roshi's powerful presence, wisdom, and love with his sexual indiscretions, ultimately awakening to deeper insights into the human self - her own as well as her teacher's-culminating in an understanding of the truth, freedom, and compassion that are present in each moment and available to us all.
