We are honored to have Zengetsu Myōkyō Oshō lead the Zazenkai. She will be giving a Dharma Talk and offering individual practice meetings. It will be an online event via Zoom; the schedule is from 5:00 AM to 5:00 PM PST.
Myōkyō began her training with Kyozan Jōshu Roshi in 1980 and moved to Mt. Baldy in 1985. She was ordained as a Zen monk in 1986 at Mt. Baldy Zen Center. Myōkyō practiced at Mt. Baldy and Rinzai-ji Zen Centers in California and Bodhi Manda and Albuquerque Zen Centers in New Mexico before returning to Canada in 1995. She was ordained as an Osho in 1999, receiving the religious name of Zengetsu, and continued to study with Jōshū Roshi until his death in July, 2014. In Montreal, Myōkyō has been involved with the larger Buddhist community and in interreligious dialogue, and served as Associate Buddhist Chaplain at Concordia University and at McGill University for a number of years. The Zen Centre that Myōkyō established in 1995, Enpuku-ji Zen Centre, celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.
