About This Event

Sesshin talk will be given by Jakusho Kwong-roshi, founding abbot of SMZC and Shuso Mitchell Hoden (法田) Katzel from 3:30 to 4:30 pm PST in the zendo.

Jakusho Kwong-roshi is the founder of Sonoma Mountain Zen Center - Genjoji temple, authorized by the Sotoshu in Japan. He is a successor of the late Shunryu Suzuki - roshi’s lineage. Kwong-roshi travelled and taught throughout America and Asia as well as Poland and Iceland where Zen practice places have been established. Also he has deep connections with the Theravadin, Shambhala/Drala Mountain Center, Rinzaiji, Soen-Korean Zen with Christian Carmelite and Benedictine traditons. He had the good karma to meet all the great Asian teachers who came West. His publications include Mind Sky: Zen Teaching on Living and Dying, No Beginning, No End: The Intimate Heart of Zen, and Breath Sweeps Mind. Jakusho continues to deepen his insight prior to the present to share with many international sincere people.

Mitchell travelled from the east coast to the west after finishing college to be a student at San Francisco

Zen Center in 1977. He was a resident at the city center and later at Green Gulch Farm until 1987. After

returning to school to complete graduate studies at UC Berkeley in 1990, he established a career as a

fluvial geomorphologist restoring rivers throughout California. Mitchell met Kwong-roshi in 2008 and

received jukai a year later. He currently resides with his wife in Sonoma Valley at the foot of Sonoma

Mountain.
