About ValleyZen

A blog exploring the intersection of Zen, Modern Life and Technology.
You! — accompanied by two modern Zen witnesses, a Zen artist and a Zen lawyer.

Take a moment from your busy, hectic life to join our oasis of Zen calm and inspiration.

Muse over creative and unusual ideas, advice, observations from us and our guests — leaders in technology, culture, business and academia. Take part in our leaps of imagination, questions and sometimes — even answers.
