Barbara Doshin Ende lives in northern Westchester with her husband, Pat, and their various animals. She came to Foundations and then CPE as a way to round out her professional experience working in healthcare. Dōshin had a thirty three career working in clinical services for the disabled and presently is a guardianship advocate for people with developmental disabilities. She has an MA in psychology and completed the MA in Pastoral Care and Counseling at New York Theological Seminary through the Zen Center.  After six years of clinical training with the Zen Center, she is a mentor for the Foundations in Buddhist Contemplative Care Training and has co-led contemplative bereavement groups and the Zen Center’s Living Fearlessly course. Doshin began her Buddhist practice over eleven years ago and this has increased with learning and commitment since becoming a formal Zen student with her teacher, Robert Chodo Campbell.
