Diana Chikan Nelson Roshi has been called both “The Doyenne of American Buddhism” and “The Dharma MILF”. This gifted hostess, teacher of Zen and Transintegral Spirituality embodies the rich tradition and history of American Dharma while steering it into the future with an experienced hand.
Diana began her life-long involvement with the Dharma scene as a young girl, at the ashram of Adi Da Samraj in the early 1970s. Quickly becoming a favorite of the Avatar and Sat-Guru, she would be known as the “Lolita-Da” well into her adolescent years. Diana later went on to study with Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Her unique talents allowed her to quickly rise through the ranks of the Vajradathu organization, and for several years she served as Head Courtesan at the Vajra Court.
After Rinpoche’s death, Diana’s karma led her to an exploration of Rinzai Zen. In 1988 she was ordained by Eido Shimano Roshi, and would serve as his personal ianfu (慰安婦, comfort woman) at Dai Bosatsu Monastery for several years. In a unique ceremony, celebrating the unity of Myoshinji Outcasts, Eido Roshi would later transfer Diana as a personal gift to Joshu Sasaki Roshi.
In 1997, Diana was introduced to Genpo Merzel Roshi, a meeting she later described as a “meeting of lingam and yoni in mid-air”. Genpo Roshi immediately recognized the unique gifts of Diana with the words “Any courtesan of Chögyam Trungpa’s is a courtesan of mine”, thus beginning a period of intensive creative collaboration: Diana received ordination as a Soto Zen nun in 1998, Dharma Transmission in 1999, and Inka in 2000. A few years later she begun facilitating Big Mind Big Heart™, a process developed by Genpo to help elicit the insights of Zen in wealthy audiences.
In 2004 Diana Roshi joined The Integral Summit, an informal network of 4th Tier spiritual visionaries. Together with evolutionary teacher “Rude Boy” Andrew Cohen she developed the intensive Hypothermic Prostration™ program, and would later set up the Kabbalah Mentoring program for high-school girls together with “The Integral Stud”, Marc Gafni.
In 2013 the Dharma Wheel would turn again, as Diana joined the nascent Transintegral Institute and became a personal student of Tutteji Wachtmeister Dai Osho. As a member of the core group of Transintegral Visionaries, Diana’s work is a priceless contribution to the meta-evolution of 5th Tier spirituality. Together with her husband, Dorkai Haze Roshi, she established Black Cow Monastery in Los Angeles – the first Transintegral Zen™ monastery in the West.
An inveterate student of Bodhisattvic Capitalism™, Diana has embarked on an entrepreneurial career and currently manages two successful nail studios in Los Angeles.
Dorkai Haze Roshi began practicing in 1971 with Roshi Philip Kapleau and was Head of Cloakroom at Rochester Zen Center until 1975. He lived and trained at Zen Center of Los Angeles under the direction of Taizan Maezumi Roshi from 1980-1994. In 1995 Dorkai received priest’s ordination from Genpo Merzel Roshi, and from 1999 he has served as senior facilitator of the Big Mind™ Process. Since 2014, Dorkai is co-abbot of Black Cow Monastery.
Recognizing the need for formal recognition as a Zen teacher, Dorkai has also trained with the following Roshi: Philip Kapleau, Eido Shimano, Joshu Sasaki, Taizan Maezumi, Genpo Merzel, Robert Aitken, Bernie Glassman, John Tarrant, Shugen Arnold, Melissa Myozen Blacker, Hogen Bays, Jan Chozen Bays, Domyo Burke, Jundo James Cohen, Nonin Chowaney, Jissan Larry Christensen, Zoketsu Norman Fisher, James Myoun Ford, Koun Franz, Musho Diane Hamilton, Taigen Leighton, Kakumyo Lowe-Charde, Ryushin Konrad Marchai, Teijo Munnich, Pat Enkyo O’Hara, Barry Magid, Ezra Bayda, Larry Christensen, Pat Jikyo George, Jun Po Dennis Kelly, Dai En Hi Fu George Burch, Doshin Hannya Michael Nelson, Meru Doug Szper, Taiso Hannya Byran Bartow, Andy Afable, Roko Sherry chayat, John Mortensen, and Genjo Marinello. After advice and consultation with these teachers, in 2010 he received Dharma Transmission from his wife, Diana Chiken Nelson, Roshi. He continues his Zen studies with Tutteji Wachtmeister Dai Osho.
Dorkai holds a Spiritupathic Doctor (PD) and Master’s Degree in Transintegral Nursing, both from Richard M Nixon University. He worked as a Coach Assistant for several years.
