Bio: Please provide full details
ZHU Caifang holds a B.A. in English from Beijing International Studies University, a master of theological studies (M.T.S.) degree from Harvard Divinity School, a Ph.D. degree in East-West psychology from California Institute of Integral Studies. He had also studied Budddism at Beijing (Peking) University and the China Natioanl Seminary of Buddhism, taught English, Buddhism and interfaith dialogue at Beijing International Studies University before going to USA to pursue advanced degrees. During the ten years in USA, he was, among others, a teaching fellow (2002-2004) with the East Asian Studies program at Harvard and in the 2003-2004 academic year he chaired the Harvard Buddhist Community. For many years he was a member of the American Academy of Religion, the American Psychological Association and the Association for Asian Studies, the Society for the Studies of Chinese Religions (based in USA), among many others. He returned to China in fall 2010.

Currently Dr Zhu is a researcher in residence in the faculty of theology at Vrije Universiteit (Free University) Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from Feb. through April 2013. He sits on the board of the International Transpersonal Association (based in USA) and is a research fellow with the International Centre of Buddhist Studies at Renmin University of China as well as with the Hebei Research Institute of Chan Buddhism. He is also an academic advisor for the doctoral program of applied psychology at the City University of Macau. In addition, he is a counselor at Yu Ge Qing Yang (Beijing) Psychological Counseling Center and (Beijing) Yu Xin Yuan Psychological Counseling Center.

He has published over 20 articles, chapters and books. Among the articles about half were published in English journals in USA and UK. Two recent pieces in English are a chapter titled “Ordinary Mind: Meditation Initiated Integrative Therapy (MIIT)” in Thomas Plante (ed.) Religion, Spirituality and Positive Psychology (2012) and an original article titled “The Hermeneutics of Chan Buddhism: Reading Koans from the Blue Cliff Record” published by Asian Philosophy journal (2011). He has given scores of lectures, presentations and workshops in the areas of Buddhism, meditation and psychology/counseling.

A disciple of Chan master Jinghui, vice president of Chinese Buddhist Association, Caifang has been a consistent practitioner of Chan/Zen Buddhism since 1991. It is important to note that since the Song Dynasty in the 11the century, Chan practice in China has mostly been a dual practice of both Chan and Pure Land.
