Renowned spiritual leader and Benedictine monk Brother David Steindl-Rast trained for 12 years in the Benedictine monastic tradition before receiving permission to practice Zen with Buddhist masters. He went on to become a postdoctoral fellow at Cornell, where he was the first Roman Catholic to hold the Thorpe Lectureship, and cofounded the Center for Spiritual Studies, as well as gratefulness.org.
