Shoshin Brynjar Kristinsson first attended a introductory course at Nátthagi Zen Center in Iceland in 2013. He received Jukai from Kwong-roshi in 2016 and was given the Dharma name Shoshin, beginners mind. Shoshin has served the Icelandic Sangha in various practice positions and been a member of the board of directors. He has also translated Kwong-roshi's book No Beginning, No End: The Intimate Heart of Zen into Icelandic. Brynjar works and studies as a carpenter and lives with his partner and their two daughters in Reykjavik, where they divide their time between the city and their cottage by a small pond.

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.
