Wayfinding Talk: Chogai Alex Kinsella


Alex is a postdoctoral investigator in the Mahadevan Group at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. His work is motivated by the question of how dynamics of the upper-ocean and of clouds affect Earth’s weather and climate – a big question that leads to broad interests.


Current research centers on intraseasonal oscillations of the Indian monsoon over the Bay of Bengal. https://www.whoi.edu/south-asian-summer-monsoon/

He spends a lot of my time out in nature looking for cool clouds and plants and birds. https://kinsella.earth/post/

His PhD work was in string theory. His thesis on M-theory/heterotic duality was advised by Professor David Morrison, while he was a member of the Simons Collaboration on Special Holonomy in Geometry, Analysis, and Physics. He was previously a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow, and before that completed a BSc in physics and mathematics at Stanford University.

He became a member of the Falmouth Soto Zen Sangha in 2022 and after attending Rohatsu in December, asked Sangaku Dan Joslyn-sensei to take Jukai.

Chogai-san will speak on his decision to take initial Precepts as a Buddhist and his experience with members of the Sangha and Sensei Joslyn, leading up to his taking Jukai, on November 18, 2023; and his sense of his Dharma name: "Chogai,"

Please join us December 5, 2023, at 7:00 PM/ET at The First Congregational of Falmouth as we hear his “Wayfinding Talk” and his experiences along the way. Zoom– https://zoom.us/j/7096899032?status=success#success and password FSZS

There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion

Sangaku
