Short Teachers’ Bio
Roshi Genro BIO
Roshi Grover Genro Gauntt, is a Founding Teacher of the Zen Peacemaker Order and a dharma successor of Roshi Bernie Glassman. He started studying with Maezumi Roshi at the Zen Center of Los Angeles in 1971 and served as Board Chairman there from 1987 to 1997. After the passing of Maezumi Roshi in 1995, he worked closely with Bernie and started serving full time as Executive Director of the Peacemaker Community in early 1997.
He studied at the University of Southern California and received an MBA in finance from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
Baptized as a Congregationalist and raised as a Presbyterian, his interfaith studies have opened him to several ongoing paths. His Native American interests include a long relationship with the Oglala Lakota on the Pine Ridge Reservation. He continues to practice and study in the Ramakrishna Order of Hinduism and he loves to participate in Sufi Dhikr. He prays the
Rosary daily. The statement of Ramakrishna “As many faiths, so many paths” rings deeply true. He leads Street Retreats wherever invited and co-leads a variety of Bearing Witness retreats internationally.
He leads traditional Zen retreats in many places at home and abroad. His home practice place is the Hudson River Peacemaker Center in Yonkers, New York.
