Laurie Schley Senauke

Laurie started formal Zen practice in 1980 at San Francisco Zen Center; she worked at Greens Restaurant back in the day, and lived at Tassajara for three years. In 1989 she married Hozan Alan Senauke and moved to Berkeley Zen Center. After several years of intense focus on childrearing, she jumped back in to formal practice and community life, serving as head student (shuso) at BZC in 2003 and receiving lay recognition in 2006. She talks to friends, teachers, students, parents, children and elders in her community.
