Brief bio: After I married, it was only after our oldest son was about 5 yrs. old that we officially  joined the Unitarian-Universalist Association at the First Unitarian Society in Milwaukee, WI.  It was only a few years after that I started practicing Buddhism with the Rev. James Ishmael Ford (UU Minister, Buddhist priest, Zen Master).  I remain the ‘Buddhist Contact’ for our church. I have been a member of UU-Buddhists for a number of years, and have contributed several articles/features to their national newsletter(1).

 

Reconfirming my Lay Precepts with the Bright Dawn Institute on Aug. 10th, 2006 (in the Ti Sarana Ceremony), and after 2 years of training with the Rev. Koyo Kubose as my Sensei, I was inducted as a Lay Buddhist Minister on May 25th, 2008, at the Bright Dawn Homestead in Plymouth, WI.
