Welcome to DMZ


Clark Hanjian is currently training as a Buddhist chaplain at Upaya Zen Center. He serves people of all faiths and beliefs, offering support during transitions, conflicts, crises, and other difficult times.


Satyagraha is a method of nonviolent social change. It is a way of directly engaging with others to work out the difficult aspects of life without resorting to coercion, harm, or ill intention.


Militarism fails to serve us well. Despite our massive investment of resources in this system, conflicts persist and safety is elusive. Additionally, militarism leaves a wake of destruction across our environment, our communities, and the human spirit. It's time to dismantle this system and develop a better alternative.


Polyspire publishes Satyagraha and the Inner Life, DMZ essays, The Sovrien, and other works by Clark Hanjian.
