I am a female Buddhist monastic of the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives and was ordained by Rev. Master Jiyu-Kennett at Shasta Abbey in 1981. Rev. Master Daishin Morgan, one of her Dharma heirs and my present master, passed on the transmission to me at Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey in 1993. In 2002 he named me a Master. Before ordination I studied Sinology at the University of Leiden. In total I spent four years in East Asia.
