Jules Shuzen Harris Roshi is founder and abbot of Soji Zen Center in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania. Shuzen Roshi is the first African American man to receive dharma transmission in the Soto Zen tradition and is a member of the White Plum Asanga and the Zen Peacemaker Order. He is also a psychotherapist. Shuzen Roshi has found that integrating psychology with Zen practice can be helpful to Zen students in the West who may be particularly prone to “spiritual bypassing.” In his 2019 book, Zen Beyond Mindfulness: Using Buddhist and Modern Psychology for Transformational Practice, Shuzen Roshi shows how a combination of committed meditation practice, a deep study of Buddhist psychological models, and tools from a psychotherapeutic method called Mind-Body Bridging, can lead to greater insight and integration of unconscious elements experience that can interfere with Zen practice.
