I was saddened to find out last week that the person who introduced me to Zen practice three years ago, Albert Low, has passed away. Albert was the teacher of the Montreal Zen Center, which I was a member of for a brief period (6 months) in 2014 before I moved to Toronto and started practicing at the center here.
Albert’s instruction was the gateway to a practice that has had a profound impact on my life. More than anything, he helped me understand Zen as something that one could incorporate directly into daily life. I will remain forever grateful.
