Santiago Santai Jiménez

Santiago Santai Jiménez is a Colombian Zen monk and co-founder of the Centro Integral Colombia. Santiago is also a multi-instrumentalist musician, music producer, and industrial engineer. Santiago’s approach to dharma integrates the gradual and sudden approaches to awakening, combining the systematic development of the mind found in some Buddhist traditions, with the immediate realization that is characteristic of some forms of Zen. He has worked in different countries with individuals and groups ranging from indigenous tribes to multinational executives, sometimes in the same setting.
