Jiko Jane Lazar was ordained as a Zen priest in 2005 by Tenshin Reb Anderson and trained residentially at Green Gulch Farm and Tassajara Zen Mountain Center for eleven years. She served as Shuso (Head Student) with Abbot Steve Stücky in the Fall of 2009. Having discovered her own unresolved trauma through zazen, she found Somatic Experiencing® to be of profound help and a strong complement to Zen practice. Now a certified Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner with a private practice in Berkeley, CA, she sees her work as helping others to heal trauma and to face difficult karma with presence and compassion. Jane was a certified trainer in Nonviolent Communication between 1995 and 2000, and she holds a blackbelt in Aikido.
