Everyone Counts

Haju Sunim began studying with her teacher, Samu Sunim, in 1976 in Toronto. In 1982, she moved into the Ann Arbor Buddhist Temple and was ordained as a priest in 1989. Haju Sunim was given dharma transmission by Samu Sunim in 1999. In the 1990s, interested in involving entire families in an integrated Buddhist life, she helped launch the temple’s Peace Camp, an annual six-day retreat, which draws people from around the world. She continues to teach at the Ann Arbor Buddhist Temple, a residential community that has just expanded its facilities to accommodate students of the Way who are seeking a more immersive practice life.
