Joanie Andras on artificial intelligence and Buddhism

Fellowship member Joanie Andras teaches meditation and Buddhist studies at our Fellowship. She’s also a long-time student of philosophy and psychology. Joanie earned a doctorate in psychology in 1993, and she was ordained as a Buddhist nun in 2005. She’ll talk about how Buddhist teachings are relevant to the escalating influences of artificial intelligence.

Sunday services begin at 11 a.m., but join us early for coffee and conversation. Visitors and guests are always welcome at our fellowship.

Who are we? You might describe our UU Fellowship as liberal or progressive, though these terms have become loaded with extra baggage. We’re certainly nondenominational. Our unofficial motto: “deeds before creeds.” As individuals, we do have beliefs, but our members subscribe to a range of religious, philosophical and ethical traditions. What we do share are a respect for the worth and dignity of all people and a respect for our planet.

Here’s what happens on Sundays. Services usually feature a speaker—either a member of the Fellowship, like Joanie, or a guest—who offers a presentation aligned with the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism. Services also include music, readings, meditation and a chance to share your own thoughts. Join us a little early for conversation.
