Kojun Sensei grew up in Anchorage and returned recently after living and training for fourteen years at Great Vow Zen Monastery in Oregon. She is a Soto Zen lineage holder and a member of both the Soto Zen Buddhist Association and the White Plum Asanga.
To support her further development, Kojun checks in regularly with Senior Teacher Judith Byakuren Ragir. See www.judithragir.org.
Zen Buddhism is about waking up. It is not necessary to “be a Buddhist” in order to practice with us. This journey of waking up is for anyone of any religious tradition.
Newcomers are always welcome.
