Myokyo-ni (note the spelling) trained from 1960 to 1972 at Daitoku-ji, Japan's head Rinzai monastery. I am not aware of her receiving inka or authorization to teach in any other lineage.
But please do tell me if I am missing something.

You may not know but shoey had a debilitating stroke several months ago and is not online these days.

Anyway I will accept whatever credentials you will put forward in the future and not waste the space on this board with these exchanges.

You are missing something....she received Inka from her friend and mentor Roshi Jiyu Kennett.

Whose Soto Sangha at one time had a lot of exchange visits with the Chithurst monks.

I wasnt aware that Shoey was that sick...I am very sorry to hear it. The last I heard from Adam I thought he was doing better.

You can't fight that sort of thing. It is like fighting the changing of a language. Buddhism changed as it moved from country to country in Asia. Zen Buddhism branching off into "Zen" the nu age ( whatever that means ) practice is just another turn of that wheel. If Zen Buddhism has good stuff to offer over Zen, some people will do it and carry it on.
In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.
