Zen and Ink was born over a decade ago out of my own personal journey to find peace and tranquility amidst the ever-increasing chaos of our modern world. In the last ten years, the pace of our modern world has only accelerated and we have moved further out of sync with nature and the rhythm of our souls.  Zen and Ink offers a quiet space for anyone along their journey seeking more balance and Zen in their daily lives.

Zen and Ink provides an oasis for those who are drawn to a slower and simpler way of life; to provide a portal for awakening, tools and resources that many will find useful in their own quest to find the Zen which is already there and always within and around each of us.

Why subscribe?

A monthly subscription allows you to join me each month on my journey for a glimpse into my travel journeys and reflections on the the larger world, my observations and reflections on living more simply and quietly as a nomad amidst the chaos of our modern world.

As a subscriber you will also receive access to the full archives of more than a hundred articles on my adventures to China, my year living in Japan, S.Korea and Central America. Subscribers also receive access to my more personal writings and poetry.

Consider foregoing the cost of one cup of coffee and a pastry each month ($8) and becoming a monthly subscriber. By becoming a founding member ($100 annually) your generous subscription helps support the journey and ensures more travel articles and insights in the future. If you prefer a one-time donation you can do so via the founding member button and input the amount you would like.

Please know your monthly gift carries a ripple effect into the greater world and humbly encourages me on my nomadic journey and also allows me to be generous with others in less modernized parts of the world.
