Dan Teller – Convert from Judaism and former Zen Buddhist

June 22, 2021 No Comments

Dan Teller grew up in an observant Jewish home, and was fascinated by the reality of God in His creation. His spiritual hunger led him to explore Zen Buddhism, and he even spent some time discerning whether or not to pursue monasticism in that tradition. Through the witness of his wife, as well as through discovering Christian mystics such as St. John of the Cross, Dan found a way to explore the reality of God that found its full fruition in the Catholic Church.
