In 1991 I legally changed my name to Shayshoshewa as part of my spiritual practice. In 2010 I founded the Society of the Compassionate Heart, Sacred Mountain Monastery in the mountains north of Boise and became a monastic with other five people. I have two children- Kotetsu (Thomas) who is a Buddhist monk, and a daughter Jill, who is a children’s therapist. Currently I am the spiritual leader of the Amaraji Maha Marai a group dedicated to prayer and helping make a difference in the world.
