I'll talk in Indonesian (with help) about my wife Katrinka McKay and my hospitality work experiences in California. Mine with the San Francisco Zen Center, hers more extensive and from teen years
to right before we left for Asia five years ago. - David Chadwick

David was born in 1945 in Texas, USA. Moved to San Francisco in 1966 at the age of 21 and got involved with the San Francisco Zen Center which met at the Zen Buddhist temple Sokoji founded in 1938 for the Japanese American Soto Zen community. We meditated there, chanted sutras, and heard lectures.

The priest of the temple, Shunryu Suzuki Roshi

In 1967 Shunryu Suzuki and his students bought Tassajara Hot Springs south of San Francisco in Monterey County deep in the mountains and founded the first Buddhist monastery outside of Asia open to anyone who wished to practice there. We also kept it up for guests from May till early September.
