Join us in the Virtual Readings Gallery to hear the story of a Zen priest's journey.


Autumn Light: My Fifty Years in Zen is an artfully told memoir of one woman’s lived experience of Zen Buddhism as it took root in America. The author weaves Zen teachings and practices into her personal story, recounting how they guided her through life’s challenges into a peaceful old age.

Edwina Norton is a life-long amateur painter, published poet, and peace activist. She earned BA and MA degrees, taught English in community college, and had a long career in organizational development. Now an ordained Zen priest, she mentors Zen students in the Red Cedar Zen Community in Bellingham.
