Guest Speaker on October 23, 2016

William Genro Holcomb, M.D. will give a Dharma Talk entitled ‘Practicing Medicine, Practicing Zen’ on Sunday, October 23, 2016 at CZC. The regular Sunday service will begin at 9:00am with this Dharma Talk scheduled to begin at 10:30am. All are welcome.

Dr. Holcomb has served on the OB/GYN faculty at Washington University and St. Louis University Schools of Medicine before joining the staff at St. Joseph Health Center in St. Charles, where he specializes in High-Risk Obstetrics. His home-based Zen practice led to daily attendance at the Missouri Zen Center. In 2002 he received Lay Ordination from Rev. Rosan Yoshida, and in 2014 Lay Entrustment from Rev. Shoken Winecoff, Abbot of Ryumonji Zen Monastery in Dorchester, Iowa. He currently conducts a meditation session every Saturday morning at Shinzo Zen Meditation Center in University City, in connection with Inside Dharma, a Buddhist outreach organization.
