Meet California

Jōshin

Jōshin

Jōshin has given up his entire life to the training to be trustworthy, to build a trustworthy community, to create a trustworthy culture that preserves life on earth. He knows that the stakes are unreasonably high and there isn’t much time.

Prior to this training, he got a degree in computer science and cognitive science with a math minor from Case Western Reserve University, then worked on things like Google’s stats pipeline and the Muse EEG headset.

His training is to strive along the path to classical Awakening, and to integrate the best methods available for applied rationality and being in relation.

成 is the final “jō” in the Four Great Vows. It means to fulfill, attain, or become so completely that nothing else remains. 真, “shin”, means true, authentic, or real.
