Setsuho Jikakan (Jen Hohman)

Jen Hohman lived at Jikoji from 2008 to 2011, and received Jukai in October, 2009. Setsuho Jikakan (“Snow Phoenix,” Jen's Dharma name) recently returned to Jikoji as a temporary resident after six years of managing a busy yoga studio in Mountain View. She currently teaches hot yoga in the Bay Area, and has an interest in alternative healing and vegan meals. In January 2016, Jen was diagnosed with HER2+ breast cancer, and will discuss how falling softly on her cushion helped her navigate the landscape after devastating news, and gave her the courage to follow an unconventional path to regain her health and find joy in everyday events.
