Mondo Zen Teacher Training 

Jun Po Roshi will be leading this, for the first time in a workshop format .

Impermanence touches all things without exception, including our beloved teachers.
Jun Po Denis Kelly Roshi has served the Dharma and his students for over forty years
and is nearing the age of semi-retirement.
Come sit near the burning log … as Janice Joplin said, “Get it while you can!”


He is offering the first opportunity to receive his Mondo teaching transmission
outside of the regular container of a Zen sesshin.
Over five days, he’ll offer transmission of state plus philosophical and practical
experience-based education for those who want Mondo transformation for:


Teacher Training in Mondo Zen -
to offer this powerful practice to others.
Teacher Training Tune Up and update -
for priests and lay disciples who have taught or are teaching Mondo Zen, and want to update and refresh their skills.
Teacher Training to Train the Teacher Within -
for those who want to embody this teaching but are not called to teach, other than to share it in their lives.


This program is a residential retreat offered in Wisconsin. It is for meditators of all levels,
from beginners to advanced students,
however it is required that you be facilitated through the Mondo process first.
