During the time of the dharma talk, we’ll have a guest zoom presentation by Katie Egart, Diamond Sangha teacher from Yellow Springs Ohio.

Hidden Light: Incarcerated Women Practice Zen
Chaplain Katie Egart looks forward to sharing her video of the voices and images of women inside who have chosen to deeply engage with Zen practice.

More about Katie:

Her Zen Buddhist group at the Ohio Reformatory for Women (Ohio’s largest women’s prison) has celebrated over 7 Jukai Ceremonies over these years, with nine women taking the Bodhisattva Vows which require a year-long intensive study as well as stitching their rakusus inside.  She is affiliated with the Yellow Springs Dharma Center in Yellow Springs, Ohio.  The Center supports three traditions: Vipassana, Zen and Vajrayana.  She is practice leader for the Zen group and a long-time student of Roshi Daniel Terragno of Rocks and Clouds Zendo in Sebastopol, CA.
