THE WAY is a single meditation training program that guides you into the deep peace, love, insight and awakening that meditation can bring. It offers a unique, clear and comprehensive path, taught by an authorized Zen Master, Henry Shukman

With THE WAY, you will:

*** Never feel overwhelmed by choice. The Way guides you step-by-step along a single, linear path through all the key areas of a deep and fulfilling meditation practice. You never have to worry about which meditation to choose.

*** Experience real transformation and deep wellbeing. Progress along a proven pathway of meditation that helps you to awaken to the true nature of your mind, your self, and your relationship to the world. Explore Zen koans, non-dual awareness and other awakening techniques.

*** Benefit from an authorized Zen Master as your guide. Study with a beloved teacher with over 35 years of meditation practice. Learn Henry Shukman’s innovative fusion of modern mindfulness, Jhana practice and Sanbo Zen teaching.

HENRY SHUKMAN teaches mindfulness and awakening practices to a wide range of students from all traditions and walks of life. Henry is an authorized Zen Master in the Sanbo Zen lineage, and is the Spiritual Director of Mountain Cloud Zen Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico. His struggles and traumatic experiences as a youth, combined with a spontaneous awakening experience at 19, paved the way for Henry to develop a well-rounded approach to meditation.

On the journey of THE WAY, you can learn to:

*** Calm the nervous system, reduce stress on a daily basis and release trauma over time
*** Uncover previously unknown support and gratitude in our lives
*** Access beautiful states of flow and absorption during meditation
*** Get tastes and glimpses of awakening - insights into your own true nature, and discovering what non-duality really means, and the deep freedom and joy it can give.

A much deeper (and simpler) path

The Way is a truly wonderful journey thus far. I have been meditating for years now using a variety of apps, but the instruction here is giving me a much better foundation of knowledge and practice. I highly, highly recommend this app to anyone wanting to go deeper with their meditation practice. Having a consistent and highly knowledgeable teacher has been transformative and the path is incredibly well laid out (and thought out).

One of a kind

I’ve been meditating on and off for years now, with the last 3 consisting of an unbroken daily practice. During my history I’ve tried numerous meditation apps. None of them compare to The Way.

It’s offered me a better foundation than any of the others I’ve tried, and Henry’s directions have been the easiest to digest.

I would say that this might be a bit more daunting for absolutely new meditators compared to other apps, however for the more “intermediate” folks, The Way is perfect. The path to awakening has never felt so clear.

I love The Way

Henry’s approach is so welcoming and gentle…I love the progression and that I don’t have to choose what meditation to do everyday…I simply follow the path!
