Josephine Simple, MRO

Josephine Simple is a writer, performer, comedian, and software engineer. She first set foot in Fire Lotus Temple in 2009, and has been a steady part of the sangha since 2014, becoming a student of Hogen Sensei in 2020.  She sees her writing and performance as nothing other than her vow to wake up, to untangle and reweave the strange karma she’s been given (and made for herself), and hopes you’ll laugh with her as her foot gets caught in the threads, and makes her fall on her face.
