Hyon Gak Sunim is a modern Zen Master who was ordained over 30 years ago by the legendary Zen Master Seung Sahn of the Kwan Um School of Zen. An earth shattering insight of awakening was later confirmed by Zen Master Seung Sahn and in 2001 Sunim was publicly authorised to bring these teachings to the world.


Hyon Gak Sunim is a sought after teacher throughout South Korea, Asia and large parts of the West and is currently leading Zen Centre Regensburg, Germany.

Arman Ray is a UK fine artist and art & design educator who switched to music making in 2014 when looking for a new challenge. After releasing several EPs he approached Hyon Gak Sunim in 2020 to collaborate in making an album that would bring authentic Zen teaching to a new and different audience.
