September 25, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Tina “Jitsujo” Gauthier, shown here to the left of Sesien Roshi, was ordained as a priest at SWZC. Her ordination took place in SWZC’s Zendo.

Before the ceremony, Kokyo and Jitsujo got ready in the gaitan (entrance) to the Buddha Hall.

Jitsujo lives at the Zen Center of Los Angeles and is often found at SWZC, attending sesshins and studying with Seisen. Here she is after the ceremony with friends from ZCLA.

Tina’s family was also present, sharing in her joy.

Following the ceremony.

A Ph.d. student at University of the West’s Religious Studies program, she is also an artist. You can see some of her work at her website, http://www.tinagauthier.com/ – take a look.
