Tom makes his money on film sets as a grip, but his passion has always been elsewhere. He is a long-time meditation practitioner. His interest in Zen and Chan goes back decades and led him to live in an urban Zen Center for 6 years. Tom has lost count of the number of retreats he has attended. Recently he was honoured to be invited to attend the Dharma Drum Mountain meditation instructors training course for lay practitioners. His purpose is to bring this practice, which has enriched his life, to a broader audience here in the west.
