Jack Haubner, author of Single White Monk & Zen Confidential

We all got to sit down and talk with Jack Haubner, author of Zen Confidential and Single White Monk, and we were all super geeked about it.

When Brent R. Oliver reviewed Jack’s book, we were all intrigued. One of the missions of The Tattooed Buddha is to highlight the extreme humanness of people that are practicing Buddhism, or even people just trying to be better people. Jack’s books seemed to touch on this exactly. When we found out we had the opportunity to actually talk to Jack and ask questions, we were all super excited and grateful!

Sit back and listen to Jack talk about being a monk, his family, being a writer (how one Buddhist writer drops books like babies from the Octo-mom), practicing Buddhism in everyday life, and dick jokes.

The Tattooed Buddha

The Tattooed Buddha was founded by Buddhist author Ty Phillips and Dana Gornall. What started out as a showcase for Ty's writing, quickly turned into collaboration with creative writer, Dana Gornall and the home for sharing the voices of friends and colleagues in the writing community. The Tattooed Buddha strives to be a noncompetitive, open space for the author’s authentic voice. So while not necessarily Buddhist, we are offering a dialogue that is aware and awake to the reality of our present day to day, tackling issues of community, environment, and compassionate living.
