For more than 40 years, Teja Bell has integrated the practice and teaching of martial arts, healing energy practices and the Dharma. He is a teacher of Aikido (5th degree Black Belt) and of the Chinese Internal Arts, and a fully ordained Rinzai Zen priest and lineage Dharma teacher. Concurrent with his martial arts training, Teja has trained across the three major Buddhist traditions: Theravadin, Mahayana Zen, and Trans-Himalayan Vajrayana. He is a bridge between the traditions of Buddhism and the Qigong and Yogic practices of Taoism.
Teja began his journey studying martial arts (Judo and Kung Fu) in 1965 with Tatsumo Makami. His studies also included Yoga, Meditation and Buddhist and Taoist philosophy. In 1971, Teja began his Aikido training with Jeff Fox Sensei (a student of Akira Tohei Sensei). He received a black belt ranking in Tae Kwon Do Karate with In Mok Kim, a 9th degree black belt. Teja expanded his training in 1975 to include Yang style Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong taught by Li Leita, a lineage Master in the “Yang” style.
Teja teaches daylongs and retreats in Qigong, the Dharma, meditation, Zen meditation and Aikido practices and the Non-Dual integrative process as taught by Peter Fenner. He is a teacher of Dr. Richard Paul’s “Critical Thinking”. He is a regular contributing teacher at Spirit Rock Meditation Center (12 years), Aikido-Ai Mt Baldy Zen Retreat (17 years) and Hollow Bones/MondoZen retreats (10 years). Teja is committed to the lifelong pursuit and mastery of these disciplines, and to the ethical and empowering communication and transmission of their essential qualities, for the benefit of all sentient beings.
In addition to his martial arts and meditation training, Teja is also a professional musician and recording artist.
