Certified InterPlay Leader
Rev. Wakoh Shannon Hickey, PhD, is a professor of religious studies, a priest of Soto Zen Buddhism, the Buddhist Campus Minister for Johns Hopkins University, and -- when she's got a good breeze and a clear field -- a pilot of stunt kites. She started InterPlaying in 2003, to balance the structure, intensity, and rigors of Zen monastic practice and academic life. She seeks ways to incorporate contemplative practices and InterPlay into academic teaching, to help people connect with themselves and one another, explore their creativity, and tap into self-acceptance, confidence, joy!
