Kokan Genjo Marinello was installed as the second Abbot of Chobo-ji, Seattle's Rinzai Zen Temple in 1999.
In this podcast we focus on his thoughtful and encompassing book Reflections on Awakening & Maturity.
Genjo is also a psychotherapist in private practice and a certified spiritual director from a program that was affiliated with the Vancouver School of Theology. Among other teachers, Genjo trained with the late Eido Shamano, former abbot of DaiBosatsu Monastery in New York, who affirmed Genjo as Dharma Heir on May 21, 2008. Genjo has served the greater Seattle community as an Adjunct Faculty member at Antioch University Seattle in Buddhist studies, a volunteer Buddhist pastor for the Washington State Department of Corrections, as has worked repeatedly with the Church Counsel of Greater Seattle in Interfaith trauma response to tragedies.
