[452] - "[...] Neither Peg nor Flint (nor any Lay teacher among Joel, Todd, or Laurie) use their Dharma nor teaching names at Appamada. In fact, I know of Peg's only from formal lineage documents she signed. [... Our] Lay teachers don't seem to be granted teaching names and we didn't publish their Dharma names, but find here the [Transmission of Light - Dharma] entrustment ceremony [on 11 Jan 2020] of the lay teachers:

Peg has advised that all the details we care to communicate are available on the website. 
[Regarding ...] the two entries you created for Peg, I can confirm the second kanji of Bushin is the heart/mind kanji in my own name. I do not know the other kanji, nor the kanji used for Koan." John Miller, email, 10 May 2022.
