I began Zen practice at Dharma Rain Zen Center in 1996 and was ordained as a Zen monk in 2001 by Rev. Gyokuko Carlson. In 2010 I was transmitted by my teacher and became a fully authorized teacher in our Soto Zen lineage.
We are regularly 10-12 people at our Tuesday practice these days (contrary to what Meetup RSVPs may indicate). We are building a sense of community and strengthening our meditation and Buddhist practice together.
