FSZS and The Silent Thunder Order

This past week we celebrated the tenth anniversary of the Silent Thunder Order. While I've written and spoken about the Falmouth Soto Zen Sangha's relationship to STO in the past it is time for an update.

Next month we will celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Falmouth Soto Zen Sangha. So we have a wonderful affiliation and realtionship worth noting.

In 2008 I was part of a group Michael Elliston-roshi's students who began developing a network of students and their sanghas into a consortium or network. This consisted of an umbrella association for interconnected training, and sharing of best practices in the lineage of Elliston-roshi's teacher Zengaku Soyu Matsuoka-roshi. See our website to learn more about O'Roshi, , This resulted in establishing a 501c3 not for profit organization in 2010.
