Isaac Gardiner has been sitting since 1996 in the Zen tradition. He was ordained as a monk in 2002 and as an osho (teacher) in 2016. He came to the practice of meditation searching for a route to make this world and life comprehensible and through seeing that many who had achieved that understanding had come this way.

The prospect of a Port Townsend Meditation Center, with its potential for people to sit quietly together, whatever their particular methodology or background is, for him, a way to sharing that ongoing search and discovery.
