Leadership & Instruction

Our daily practice - gyoji, the repetition of the exercise - is beyond space, time and karma, the adventure of the eternal moment.

Eishuku Monika Leibundgut

Zen nun Eishuku Monika Leibundgut was ordained as a Bodhisattva in 1986 and as a nun in 1988. She is a close disciple of Meiho Missen Michel Bovay, was his assistant for over 20 years and has been leading the Zen Dojo Zurich since his death as his designated successor, supported by other monks and nuns. In May 2012, she received Dharma transmission from Gu’en Yuko Okamoto at Teishoji Temple in Japan.

Gyoji means “the ceaseless repetition and continuation of practice”.
