Student talk will be given by Jundo (純道) Mike Farrand, senior student of Kwong-roshi and ordained priest. Jundo began formally practicing Zen at Sonoma Mountain Zen Center where he had lived as a student since 2005. During his residency he has held the position of Kansui (Administator), Shissui (Work Leader), and Tenzo (Head Cook). Jundo received Jukai from Jakusho Kwong-roshi in 2005 and was ordained as a priest in 2015. He has also served as Shuso (Head Student) leading the 30 day intensive practice period in the winter of 2015, giving talks, providing interviews and guiding students through the daily schedule. Before coming to Genjo-ji, he worked as a baker and then a machinist for several companies in the North Bay. Jundo is an avid golfer and enjoys playing and practicing whenever he gets the chance.
