Tim Burkett

Tim began Zen practice in 1964 with his first teacher, Suzuki Roshi. He was ordained as a Zen priest in 1978 by Katagiri Roshi, who was Suzuki’s assistant prior to Suzuki’s death. Tim has been guiding teacher at the Minnesota Zen Meditation Center, founded by Katagiri Roshi, for the last 15 years. He is also a psychologist and retired CEO of People Incorporated, a large non-profit agency that supports people in need of mental health support. In his first book, Nothing Holy About It, Tim intersperses stories about his teachers with his own guidance about living a life unburdened by limiting ideas and concepts. In his second book, Zen in the Age of Anxiety: Wisdom for our Modern Lives, he helps the reader do two things: 1) identify the causes of mental and emotional anxiety epidemic in today's world; 2) walk the path of a peaceful heart, a path that leads though the center of the anxiety we're desperate to escape.
