Please join us on Sunday, June 26th for a collaborative online Zazenkai with Enpuku-ji Temple in Montreal led by Zengetsu Myōkyō, Oshō. It will be a hybrid online-in person event; the schedule is from 5:00 AM to 5:00 PM PST. Myokyo will be giving a Dharma Talk and offering individual practice meetings. Please register here or from the rinzaiji.org website, and you will be sent the Zoom links, the schedule, and instructions for a practice meeting with Myokyo.
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, celebrated its 25th anniversary last year.
