About our Guest Teacher: Randy Baker
Randy Baker began practising Zen meditation in 1977 as a student of Roshi Philip Kapleau. His Zen training included 10 years on staff at the Rochester Zen Center. After practising Zen for 20 years, Randy took up the practice of Vipassana. He has since worked with a number of well-known Western Vipassana teachers. Today, Randy offers a clear and direct approach to the meditation practices of mindfulness and goodwill (metta). He teaches Insight Meditation at Satipañña Insight Meditation Toronto.
