Nice approach Infinite. I recently attended a Theravada - based vipassana retreat held at a Zen center and the energy of the center was so beautiful. I also met the administrator of the center who practices Zen and his presence was very grounded, clear and powerful. I may explore more once I have more time in the Theravada tradition.
