Glen Choi was born in Toronto, Canada to Korean immigrant parents, spent his 20s and early 30s studying and working in South Korea, and returned to Canada in 2005. He currently teaches humanities/social sciences at a college in Toronto. A lifelong Buddhist, he received a Ph.D. in Religious Studies ("Buddhism in the West") from the University of Ottawa and an M.A. in Seon (Zen) Studies from Dongguk University in Seoul. His writing has appeared in publications from South Korea to the United States and Canada. Glen also hosted a 12-part TV documentary series on Buddhism in Canada called "Path to Enlightenment."
Glen Choi has a simple request for the universe – help him find his one true passion in life. He moves from Canada to his ethnic homeland of South Korea to find it. There, Choi encounters cultural challenges and unexpected turns in careers. With hope fading, his experiences culminate in a Zen-inspired insight into impermanence and the discovery that what he was looking for was never that far away.
