Respected Roshi. After 20 years of seeking truth in different religions and philosophies I have finally come full circle back to Zen practice. I have a lower back injury which means I am always in pain when sitting. Is there a posture less demanding than half lotus that I can use? With a bow to you

Sitting is only one aspect of the practice, yet that essence of mind can be found in any situation. You only need to be wide and open in mind.
