Would you give up everything to follow a Zen master? For my sister who I hadn't seen in years, the answer was yes. She joined a cult, changed her name, became a disciple of a Zen master named "Umi" and cut off most contact with her past. To reconnect, I had to throw off my prejudices and enter her world. And to get to know her, I needed to get to know everyone in her community, including "Umi". "Stillpoint" is a rare look inside an isolated enclave of seekers.
