My name is Martie (Kodo). I have been practicing with Keizan Sensei and the Stonewater sangha for 3 years now. I'm currently undertaking an MSc is research methods. The research is looking at mindfulness, meaning in life, dissociation, anxiety/depression and quality of life. I need the participation of about 100 Zen Buddhists for the work to be at a standard to be published.
The only information I will retain will be the particpant's initials or false initials, age , sex, country of residence and whether they are a zen buddhist. All information and answers given will be anonymous and no personal information will be disclosed.
I would like to request the 'dana' of fifteen minutes of your time to complete the questionnaire. You can find this by clicking on the link below. Once completed please click the 'submit' at the end of the questionnaire.
