Marie Kyoko Morohoshi | Meditation Instructor
When: Every Monday from 7-8pm
Suggested Donation: $5-$20
Join us every Monday evening as we offer a brief introduction to meditation with a simple breath technique and a crystal singing bowl to help deepen our sit and restore our cells and rebalance the nervous system. Please bring a cushion (if you have one or simply sit in a chair) and drop in as often as you like. No experience necessary; just a commitment to your liberation.
Marie Kyoko Morohoshi is a second generation Japanese American whose life is steeped in zen tradition; from the time she was six years old she began training in Chado (The Way of Tea) in the Urasenke Tradition and Ikebana (Japanese Flower Arrangement), and later in zen meditation. Together, she brings over 30 years of zen-based practices to the cushion.
She is the co-founder of the Center for Transformative Change (formerly known as the New Dharma Meditation Center), a residential “transformative practice community” rooted in the practice of zen meditation, supporting primarily people and activists of color bridging their outer and inner worlds through meditation, yoga, and inner awareness practices.
Marie is also a Reiki Master and teacher who recently deepened her practice following a pilgrimage to Kurama Yama, Japan where Usui Sensei healed himself and founded the practice of Reiki. In Marie’s own practice, she incorporates sound healing, crystals, and the indigenous teachings of her Two-Spirit Lakota Sundance community for whom she serves as the fire chief.
