Hi! I’m Tasshin! I am bringing loving kindness into the world for the benefit of all beings. 💗
“All who act upon their highest motivations become a power for good.”
– Peace Pilgrim
Loving kindness, or mettā, is one of the most powerful meditation techniques that I’ve found. It’s relatively easy, extremely enjoyable – even blissful – and it can genuinely change your life.

My name, Tasshin (達真) means to reach or achieve truth. You can pronounce it “toss shin” (that’s the Americanized pronunciation) or “toss sheen” (the Japanese pronunciation). I received this name in 2018, when I took bodhisattva vows with my teachers Shinzen Young and Soryu Forall.
- I am currently in Portugal! 🇵🇹
- I’m working on two music video projects, using music and dance as a way to inspire others to practice metta. 😮
- My current interests: Sun Tai Chi, Zhan Zhuang, dance, self-therapy techniques, and marketing. ⚡️
