Janine Larsen, WUUC member and a past president, will share some of what she has learned from her Zen Buddhist practice about responding to what life brings us. Janine has also been a member of the UUA’s Congregational Life Staff serving the Pacific Western Region for the past 11 years. During her recent sabbatical leave, she spent a month in silence at a UU-grounded Zen Temple in Massachusetts, engaging Koan introspection and discovering even more deeply that we are not what we think.
