Bianca Gates is a first-generation American, her parents having immigrated to the U.S. from Latin America.

The reason: Gates, along with cofounder Marisa Sharkey, are the co...

10 Buddhist koans, and why understanding them is pointless

Koans are one of the most meaningful practices in Zen Buddhism.Usually translated as "nonsensical," the sentences have much greater purpose. Breaking beyond concepts in meditation is a driving factor of the koan. None Humans like to know what a sentence means. Sometimes we'll go to great lengths to derive meaning from a group of words.
