The Zen Peacemakers site reports today that Pia Gyger, a psychologist and Zen teacher in the White Plum Sangha lineage, has passed away. Our thoughts go to her family, students, and sangha.
Starting in the 1970s, Gyger trained extensively in Japan and in Hawaii, eventually receiving dharma transmission from Robert Aitken and being confirmed as a Zen master by Tetsugen Bernie Glassman. She was co-founder of the Lassalle-Institute and co-initiator of the Jerusalem-Project. For more information about her life and work, click here.
