Jakusho Kwong-roshi

 

Our group was founded in 2011 by Nancy Seiko Reder and Peter Shodo Pocock, students of Jakusho Kwong-roshi, abbot of the Sonoma Mountain Zen Center. Our meditation practice continues the Sōtō Zen lineage of Shunryu Suzuki-roshi, founder of the San Francisco Zen Center and Tassajara Zen Mountain Center, who came to the United States in 1959 as one of the first Japanese Zen priests to teach American students.
