Shoho Michael Newhall was ordained and transmitted by Kobun Chino Otogawa Roshi. Prior to his installation as Jikoji’s Resident Teacher, he taught art and Buddhism at Naropa University, the Art Institute of Chicago, and other universities in the midwest. He leads sesshins and meditation workshops at Zen centers in the U.S. and Europe. Shoho has also practiced and studied with Keibun Otogawa in Japan, Dainin Katagiri Roshi, and Tenshin Reb Anderson. At the close of our annual Denko-e ("Transmission of Light") Sesshin, Michael experientially engages the Satipatthana Sutra on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness: Body, Feelings, Consciousness, and Mental Factors.
