Three Stories, Three Paths

The first of our series of playfully entitled “One Night Stands…” begins on September 26, 2019 from7:00-8:30 PM in the Social Hall of the UUSA. This program will offer thoughtful and lively perspectives from three people who integrate Buddhist practice into their lives and involvement with Unitarian Universalism.

Rob Fuderich—Recently retired from UNICEF, Rob got interested in Buddhism as a Peace Corp Volunteer 42 years ago when working in Nepal. His practice of Vipassana Meditation gives his life “meaning and balance.”
Susanne Personette—Began with Transcendental Meditation in the 1970s and has studied Tibetan Buddhism (Mahayana and Dzogchen) with teachers for 16 years. She is a retired architect and a painter.
Ed Schreiber—has worked with a rather non-traditional Zen teacher for 25 years. He is a human services administrator, trainer and speaker with a focus in addiction treatment.

Join us for an informal evening of serious and playful conversation and, dare we say, spiritual spaciousness. You’ll be invited to ask questions. All are welcome!

If you are paying attention, you’ll leave this gathering reflecting on your own life, how you make meaning, or handle the stress and chaos that inevitably shows up. And, it may challenge you to think more about how we live in community and our exquisite interconnectedness with each other.
There is no charge for this program, although your voluntary, free-will donation will help us defray expenses.
