Tenjo Hopwood

Tenjo Hopwood from the Gloucester Diamond Buddhist Temple is our guest speaker this month. Tenjo (aka Bill) was ordained as a Shingon priest in Japan and has practiced Buddhism for over nineteen years. He recently published a memoire about a pilgrimage on foot around 88 Shingon temples in Japan, called Mud and Diamonds.

At the Gloucester temple, Tenjo works with those who find themselves seeking change. That could be skills to better relax, or deeper help with anxieties, depression or problems with confidence. He has worked in acute mental health and addictions for over thirty years and has recently delivered over six hundred mindfulness sessions to inpatients for the NHS.

If you would like to join us, please contact Andy Vivian to ask for the Zoom invitation
