Please arrive at the center by 3:00 p.m. and settle if you’re staying. There will be an orientation for all participants at 5:00 p.m.
We’re pleased to announce that we have a special guest, Ursula Jarand Rōshi from Daishū-in West. Daishū-in West is one of three Myōshin-ji international branch temples in USA.
Ursula Jarand was born in 1952 in southern Germany. At age twenty-seven, a deep interest in Zen Buddhism led her to Daishū-in in Kyoto, Japan, where she became a diciple of Sōko Morinaga Rōshi. She practiced under his guidance in Japan for the next fifteen years, eventually receiving Dharma transmission from him. In 1994, she came to Northern California with Shaku Daijō to establish a branch temple of Daishū-in, Daishū-in West, where she continues to teach a core group of practioners today.
