Peter Szydlowski

Many years ago, Peter Szydlowski was ordained as a Zen Priest by Kobun Chino Otogawa Roshi at Jikoji. On those infrequent occasions  when he is due to talk at a Sunday program or sesshin, he tends to focus on zazen, "just sitting", presence, and/or silence. He usually works outdoor kinhin into the schedule--he was, after all, a  National Park ranger for 16 years. He is still an avid hiker and traveler, "grampa" of five, and past Jikoji board president.
