Dharma Transmitted Priest
Lori Oshin Coates is a 1997 graduate of the Ohio State university holding a BA in literature. For the past 20 years she has worked as a professional pet groomer and owns her own grooming business in Columbus Ohio.
While pursuing lifelong love of reading and knowledge she has read French and German existentialists, especially Herman Hesse, whose works, especially Siddhartha, led her to want to learn more about Zen Buddhism. In 2014 she became John Shoji Sorensen’s student and took jukai that same year, took unsui in 2017 and was dharma transmitted in 2022. Lori offers local online meditation sessions in Columbus OH.
