The headmistress of Nisou-do, Ms.Aoyama Shundo, is a very famous nun. 
Her book Zen Seeds is available in English translation.

The material covered in the lectures is from Dogenfs Shobogenzo (gTreasury of the True Dharma Eyeh),
the most important philosophical work within the Soto-school of Zen.

reported by Genevra

Ms. Aoyama Shundo is a very famous person among the Buddhists and intellects.
I happenly watched an educational talk program produced by NHK (national TV channel) in which she was talking about the way of life in August, 2006.
