This week on Swoop's World Radio show Wednesday at 9pm PST our guests will be Arthur Wayu Kennedy of the Yokoji-Zen Mountain Center, and we will introduce you to our new segment with LB Food Review! The Yokoji-Zen Mountain Center mountain retreat is located on 160 acres of pristine wilderness in the local San Jacinto Mountains. The center is off-grid, operating primarily on solar energy and wind generators. The water comes from a deep mountain spring and a compost system provides nourishment for the organic orchard and garden. Wayu has received Denkai (Precept Holder) Transmission from Tenshin Roshi. And Tenshin Roshi received his dharma transmission from Taizan Maezumi Roshi--one of the early Japanese teachers to bring Zen to the West in the 60's. Denkai is the first step towards becoming an official Zen teacher, or sensei. Wayu is also a certified teacher of Chanoyu (Japanese Tea Ceremony) from the Uresenke School, Kyoto, Japan. Also on Wednesday we be introducing our new segment with Taylor Nelson and Chris Livingston, of LB Food Review, a couple of light-hearted critics intent on eating their way through the best restaurants of Long Beach. Together we will produce bi-monthly segments about the local restaurant and bar scene that will air exclusively on Swoop’s World. Tune in at 9pm Listeners will have the opportunity to call in live (917) 889-7449 or join via our online chat.
