Jisen moved to Boise, Idaho in late August 2016; she was born and raised in a small town in western Pennsylvania, just north of Pittsburgh. From there, she traveled, studying dance, music, physical therapy, and the Alexander Technique. Her only time spent way from the eastern part of the country was attending graduate school in southern California. Eventually she found her way back to Pittsburgh and years later began teaching meditation, movement, and serving on the Council for Spiritual Advisors at Carnegie Mellon University. Also, she led City Dharma, a Soto Zen Buddhist community, in Pittsburgh. And, she helped establish the Zen Center of Pittsburgh, a residential center, in the outskirts of the city. In October, 2017, she opened the Boise Zen Center; its intent is to offer a practice place steeped in Zazen, seated meditation.


These classes at Jump are informed by Jisen's training and certification in the Alexander Technique, physical therapy, music, dance, and Zen. The Alexander Technique is an active exploration that changes the way one responds in relationship to activity. In the spirit of her teaching, she says we can be explorers. "Experimenting with movement can bring about an expanding awareness. Making discoveries, our lives deepen, widen, lengthen, and we may begin sensing a spaciousness that has always been there only forgotten".
