    Paula Jones first became a student of Jikoji founder Kobun Chino when she
    attended the Santa Cruz Zendo in the mid-seventies. A year or two later
    she, with her young daughter, moved into the residence with a changing
    group of caretakers and friends, one of whom she later married. During and
    after that time she attended sesshins at Hidden Villa with Kobun's students
    from Los Altos, including Angie Boissevain, who some years later became her
    teacher.

    In the years that followed, she finished her MA in Creative Writing and
    began teaching poetry, literature and writing in colleges and private
    workshops in Santa Cruz, the Mojave Dessert and San Diego, where she and
    Balin now live. She received ordination and transmission from Angie and has
    since taught at several Jikoji sesshins. She is a teacher at Floating Zendo
    San Diego and is now one of the teachers at Floating Zendo San Jose.
