Our Sensei

Sensei Tanis Moore

MBTCommendation Dinner 201922062973

Before Tanis Moore became a lay minister at the Manitoba Buddhist Temple, she would drive from her home in Manitoba's Interlake area to attend Sunday service in Winnipeg.

When Moore eventually moved to Winnipeg, she attended regular services at the temple led by Sensei Fredrich Ulrich who was the minister at the time. She also deepened her relationship with the sangha by volunteering at temple events and a became a member on the Board of Directors. But, an interest in Shin Buddhism led her delving further into formal Buddhist studies.

Moore studied online, taking the Jodo Shinshu Correspondence Course. As a participant, she went to seminars at the Jodo Shinshu Centre in Berkley, Calfornia. In 2019, she traveled to the Nishi Hongwanji in Kyoto, Japan receiving her Tokudo ordination, under the leadership of Bishop Tatsuya Aoki of the Jodo Shinshu Buddhist Temples of Canada. 

Sensei Moore, along with her daughter and son-in-law, continue to split their time between Winnipeg and their country home near Arnes, Manitoba.

Her interests include traditional Chinese medicine and working with Winnipeg's interfaith community.
