Monastic Ordination for Yusen Taikyo Gilman and Josen Hokyu Aronson
Geoffrey Shugen Arnold, Roshi - Zen Mountain Monastery, 6/6/2021 - Today the Monastery held the first double monastic ordination in our 40+ year history. Shugen Roshi officiated this shukke tokudo ceremony for Suzanne Taikyo Gilman and Hokyu JL Aronson. Tokudo marks the formal taking of monastic vows and, in our tradition, expresses a lifetime commitment to the Monastery. Taikyo was given the monastic name Yusen, meaning River of Courage, and Hokyu was given the monastic name Josen, which Shugen Roshi translated as Humble Mystic.

Shuso Hossen: Linda Shinji Hoffman
Linda Shinji Hoffman, Senior Lay Student - Zen Mountain Monastery, 05/30/2021 - True Dharma Eye, case #199 - Dongshan's Essential Path - On May 30th, we concluded our Spring 90-day ango training period with this Shuso Hossen ceremony. Shuso Hossen means "chief disciple (or, literally, 'head seat') dharma encounter." It is a centuries-old tradition that empowers a Zen student to represent the teachings and help guide other students in their own cultivation. In this case, Linda Shinji Hoffman completed her training in this role by offering her first public talk to the sangha in which she presented her understanding of a koan from the collection found in the teachings of Eihei Dogen.
