Zen Priest Sensei Shinzan Yoko Palma Free Event says
Sensei Shinzan Yoko Palma was born in Veracruz, Mexico. He has been practicing Zen since 1996. He met his former teacher, Korean Zen Master Samu Sunim in Mexico City and trained under his guidance for 8 years. He did a residential training for 4 years at the Zen Buddhist Temple in Toronto, Canada and was ordained as a novice priest by Samu Sunim in 2004.

After leaving Canada, he was invited by Roshi Joan Halifax to come to Upaya Zen Center in 2006. Sensei Shinzan asked Roshi to be her student and he was re-ordained as a Priest in 2007 by Roshi Joan Halifax. Since then, he has been at Upaya Zen Center practicing with the community. He was most recently the Head Priest and Temple coordinator, giving guidance to the residents on Zen training. He became Dharma holder on March, 2010 and received Dharma Transmission on January 20, 2015. This signifies the completion of Shinzan’s formal training and confers upon him the role of a fully ordained priest and teacher. He has a sincere and strong heart committed to the Dharma.
