I live on Whidbey Island, north of Seattle, with my wife and three daughters, where I teach Meditation/Qigong and see clients for manual therapy. For the last few years, I’ve been doing some small in-person workshops/retreats involving meditation and internal process, as well as leading a growing international online community of practitioners. The practices include Zhan Zhuang, Qigong, seated meditation, and Non-Directed Body Movement. After spending my twenties falling in love with internal energetic embodiment work in a Zen Monastery in Japan, and then more than fifteen years learning to integrate those experiences, I have some unique insights to help guide others in this process.
I also offer classes and one-on-one sessions via Zoom/Skype, as well as distance healing sessions. For more information, please see this post.

A few PODCAST INTERVIEWS Featuring Corey:
Interview #2 with Shane Hanner on the Humint Podcast
Zen And Tea at Water Moon Dojo
The Embodiment Podcast, with Mark Walsh Aug 4,2019
“Zen practitioner and body worker Corey joins me to talk how bodies rebel, Gary Snyder, his time in the monastery, how Zen teachers move, meditation embodied, structural integration, structured vs unstructured traditions, Butoh, Noguchi Taiso, Zhan Zhuang, the many “flavours” of meditation, new online possibilities, “life artists”, life transfer and “kufu”, rebelliousness in training and the “wholesale experience of truth”, Japanese vs American Zen, and a lovely closing message. An amiable jaunt.”

I had a great time talking on the Classical Ideas Podcast again. This time, tackling the elusive, often misunderstood zen koan. Really fun!
Please Share it if you like, and support Greg! Thanks!
From Greg Soden: Episode #108 with my friend (and returning guest), Corey Ichigen Hess discusses the elusive Rinzai Zen koan practice! We had a ton of fun!

Here is a podcast interview with my brother: Topics include reasons for going to a Zen Monastery, How Bob Dylan relates to Zen, finding our own practice, how Zen makes us into artists. It was a great time hangin with my big bro.

The most profound may be the most simple.
Jim Oschman! Wow! Thank you for your work! I love it and learn from it!
thank you Corey. Heard the Mu koan and only now digging in… while walking towards qualities of Buddha
Oh great! Thank you!
Hey Corey, I’ve seen you at Tahoma over the years, didn’t know about your deep explorations into the work of body/mind stuff. Looking forward to getting to know about your path on Tuesday with WMD. Celia
Oh thanks, Celia! Much appreciated.
