Jaune Evans

Jaune Evans has studied Zen since 1978. She was ordained as a priest by Bernie Glassman Roshi in 1983 at the Zen Community of New York. During her years of practice there, Jaune served as Director of Sales at the Greyston Bakery and Tenzo. She continued studying Zen with Joko Beck, Robert Aitken, George Bowman, and Trudy Goodman. Her interest in ecumenicism has included religious study with Lex Hixon, His Holiness The Dalai Lama, Mata Amritanandamayi, T.K.V. Desikachar, Joseph Goldstein, and Deena Metzger. Now a student of Norman Fischer and a priest in the Everyday Zen lineage, Jaune works as the Managing Director of Tamalpais Trust, which supports the protection of sacred lands and waters, cultural and human rights, gender empowerment and global alliance-building through the work of indigenous-led organizations.
