Started in May of 2009, Sweeping Zen has become a major source of Zen teachings in the West in its two years.The website has a comprehensive archive of teachings, interviews, biographies, videos, blogs and podcasts from leading voices in Western Zen dharma. The website relies almost exclusively on its readership to raise the funds needed to maintain the growing database, expand website features and pay the editor a livable salary.
Sweeping Zen is a grassroots initiative dedicated to democratic principles of transparency and open dialogue. The site aims for coverage that is free of sectarianism, allowing for open discussion and the expression of differing viewpoints.
