Jobs did in fact find a teacher right in his own neighborhood.
Shunryu Suzuki, who wrote Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind and ran the San Francisco Zen Center,
used to come to Los Altos every Wednesday evening to lecture and meditate with a small group of followers.
After a while he asked his assistant, Kobun Chino Otogawa, to open a full-time center there.
Jobs became a faithful follower, along with his occasional girlfriend, Chrisann Brennan,
and Daniel Kottke and Elizabeth Holmes.
He also began to go by himself on retreats to the Tassajara Zen Center,
他还开始一个人去塔萨加拉禅宗中心（Tassajam Zen Center)修行，
a monastery near Carmel where Kobun also taught.
Kottke found Kobun amusing. "His English was atrocious," he recalled.
"He would speak in a kind of haiku, with poetic, suggestive phrases.
We would sit and listen to him, and half the time we had no idea what he was going on about.
I took the whole thing as a kind of lighthearted interlude." Holmes was more into the scene.
"We would go to Kobun's meditations, sit on zafu cushions, and he would sit on a dais," she said.
"We learned how to tune out distractions. It was a magical thing.
One evening we were meditating with Kobun when it was raining,
and he taught us how to use ambient sounds to bring us back to focus on our meditation."
As for Jobs, his devotion was intense.
"He became really serious and self-important and just generally unbearable," according to Kottke.
He began meeting with Kobun almost daily, and every few months they went on retreats together to meditate.
"I ended up spending as much time as I could with him," Jobs recalled.
"He had a wife who was a nurse at Stanford and two kids.
She worked the night shift, so I would go over and hang out with him in the evenings.
She would get home about midnight and shoo me away."
They sometimes discussed whether Jobs should devote himself fully to spiritual pursuits, but Kobun counseled otherwise.
He assured Jobs that he could keep in touch with his spiritual side while working in a business.
The relationship turned out to be lasting and deep;
seventeen years later Kobun would perform Jobs's wedding ceremony.
Jobs's compulsive search for self-awareness also led him to undergo primal scream therapy,
which had recently been developed and popularized by a Los Angeles psychotherapist named Arthur Janov.
It was based on the Freudian theory that psychological problems are caused by the repressed pains of childhood;
Janov argued that they could be resolved by resuffering these primal moments while fully expressing the pain—sometimes in screams.
