About the Author

Ilia Shinko Perez is the co-leader, along with Gerry Shishin Wick, of workshop retreats using the Great Heart Method. She lives in Lafayette, Colorado.

Gerry Shishin Wick is a dharma heir of Taizan Maezumi. He studied with both Soto and Rinzai Zen masters (as did Maezumi) and for 20 years his understanding of the koans in the Book of Equanimity was examined by Maezumi. A former professor of physics, oceanography, and, later, Buddhism, Wick is a teacher whose unique qualifications make him a particularly appealing author.
