Mingzhou Kenjin Guo Roshi was born and raised in China, and came alone to the U.S. when he was 15 as a high school exchange student in New York City. He received his B.A. in Philosophy from the University of California, Berkeley, where he studied Confucianism with Prof. Kwong-Loi Shun.
Kenjin met his Buddhist teacher Samvara at age 23. In 2018, on the snows of Mt. Shasta, he was ordained a Buddhist monk and initiated into a school of esoteric Buddhism. After a series of spiritual breakthroughs, he was given the Dharma name "Kenjin" (person of wisdom) with the instruction and transmission to share the Dharma. In 2020, he met Genpo Roshi and became a certified facilitator of the Big Mind process. He received Inka (final seal of approval) from Genpo Roshi on March 19, 2022.
He currently lives and works in San Francisco Bay Area. An accomplished martial artist, calligrapher, contractor and businessman, his primary interest is assisting spiritual practitioners to establish right livelihoods and stay strong and balanced in the world.
