Who We Are

Welcome to United in Action: Dialogue at the Tzu Chi Center for relief. These monthly episodes hosted by Steve Chiu are centered on where Tzu Chi’s mission and the mission of the United Nations align: improving lives and transforming communities by eradicating poverty, promoting development, and upholding human rights. This episode we’ll be joined by our guests Sensei Koshin Paley Ellison, President and Guiding Teacher at the New York Zen Center, and Jasmine Huang, Project Manager of Tzu Chi’s Dharma As Water team.


Sensei Koshin, President and Guiding Teacher at the New York Zen Center, is a world-renowned thought leader in contemplative care whose work combines Zen teachings and Jungian psychotherapy. NY Zen Center offers contemplative approaches to care through education, care partnering, and Zen practice.

Jasmine Huang, born in Taiwan and raised in California, is a lifelong translator with a passion for cross-cultural connection. Since her undergraduate years she has dedicated her time to Tzu Chi’s mission and now serves as Project Manager of Tzu Chi’s Dharma as Water team which leads the implementation of Tzu Chi’s English-language Buddha Bathing Ceremony.
