Welcome our new Assistant Treasurer

Monday, August 01, 2022 6:16 AM | Michael Kelberer (Administrator)

A warm welcome to Ginger Harris, who has volunteered to take the position of Assistant Treasurer. 

Ginger Harris became interested in Buddhism after picking up a Buddhist text in a Netherlands hotel room in 2009 and reading what the Buddha taught about suffering. She began studying Buddhism in its various forms and had the opportunity during that time to visit to several Buddhist temples in Thailand and Singapore. In 2010, she took an Introduction to Zen Meditation course series at the Houston Zen Center, and in 2011 attended a retreat with Thich Nhat Hanh, where she received the Five Mindfulness Trainings. She also practiced for couple of years after this with Lost Coin Zen, a semi-virtual Zen group from both Rinzai and Soto Zen lineages.   

In 2016, she moved for work to the PNW with her two sons and husband and practiced on her own until recently when a desire to deepen her practice and to be part of a Sangha led her to find Red Cedar.

Professionally, Ginger is an engineer and works in business development for bp in Cherry Point, where she seeks to help bridge the gap from fossil fuels to renewable sources of energy. She has served as the Treasurer for both Bayou Village school in Houston in 2013, and for OPAL, a community beautification non-profit in La Conner in 2019. She is a Kundalini Yoga instructor and loves health and fitness. She is looking forward to serving the Red Cedar Sangha and getting to know more of our members in the future!
