Catherine Anraku Hondorp, Sensei
Catherine Anraku Hondorp Sensei is a Zen teacher in the White Plum Lineage, a Network Chiropractor, a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner®, a Soto Zen Buddhist priest, dancer and choreographer. She received Dharma Transmission from Enkyo O’Hara Roshi in December 2009. In 2011, together with Ryūmon Hilda Baldoquín Sensei, Anraku Sensei co-founded Two Streams Zen, a Dharma movement dedicated to transforming people and communities through fearless intimacy and living compassion.
In her private practice at The Life Center for Network Chiropractic, the emphasis of her work is to empower us to connect to our innate embodied wisdom, transforming personal and intergenerational patterns of suffering into organic strategies for healing and awakening. In 2012 her quest to understand and heal individual, cultural and collective trauma led her to become a Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner (SEP®), the work developed by Peter Levine, Ph.D. Anraku’s Dharma expression inextricably weaves together her experience as Artist, Healer and Social Activist with her passion for living an honest awake life.
