“A Vision of Awakened Society,” Rev. Ann Tyndall

If Unitarian Universalist Principles grounded our society we could easily imagine it as just, inclusive, responsible and kind.  Shambhala Buddhism, too, is grounded in a vision of enlightened society, which is the ultimate goal of the path. What would such a society be like and how might we live our personal and public lives in ways that create such a society?

Ann Tyndall is a practicing Shambhala Buddhist, and she holds ordinations in both Unitarian Universalism and Shambhala Buddhism.  She works as a staff chaplain at Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center in La Crosse, Wisconsin, on the western border of the state.  Prior to entering chaplaincy she served as a Unitarian Universalist minister, most recently with her partner, Rev. Barbara Pescan, at the Unitarian Church of Evanston, IL.
