“Talk Story” is a unique local cultural experience in which people share their life experiences and develop relationships that build and strengthen communities. At the Hongwanji, we invite special Dharma teachers to lead a dialogue that furthers our awareness, understanding and experience of the embrace of wisdom and compassion. Historically, Rennyo Shonin (8th Head of the Honpa Hongwanji) effectively spread the teachings of Shinran Shonin (Founder, Jodo Shin School) through facilitated dialogue sessions referred to as “Ko Groups”.
