About This Event
Thank you for your ongoing support. To sustain SMZC, please donate $10 (suggested) for the Saturday Community program.
Student talk will be given by Kevin Shindo (心土) Souza, a student of Kwong-roshi, following 10:30 am zazen. Kevin started practicing in Phoenix AZ in 2007 right around the time his son was born. He was at a point in his life where he had to make significant changes in order to be the father his son deserved. In 2008 he moved to Carson City to be closer to his son where he led a sitting group on Thursday nights. He would travel back and forth from Carson to SMZC to practice on weekends whenever he got a chance. He received Jukai from Kwong-roshi in 2009 and was given the dharma name Shindo which means “Mind/Ground.” He served as Shuso (head student) for the Summer Ango in 2021. He currently lives in Berkeley, CA with his wife and 13-year-old son and works full time. He loves spending his free time outdoors in the mountains backpacking in the summer and skiing in the winter.
