Bobbie is an ordained member of the Order of Interbeing, having
attained ordination after two years of study and work with several
mentors. The Order of Interbeing is an organization established by
Thich Nhat Hanh in 1963, during the Vietnamese War. His aim was to
create a community of monks, nuns and laypeople who would work to
create peace, love and compassion in our fractured world. The
Order now includes thousands of people from all walks of life and
all parts of the globe.
Bobbie is a retired public school teacher and an amateur musician
who enjoys singing, writing haiku poems, drawing mandalas and
reading. She is dedicated to living in harmony with the vows of
the Order of Interbeing to promote peace, love and compassion
within herself so that she can share those qualities with others.
