Linda G is Retiring!

October 7, 2022

Dear KCC Sangha,

After nearly six years of working as full-time paid staff at KCC, I have decided to retire. I’ve announced my intention to the Board and Service Groups to officially retire within 4-5 months and wanted you all to know as well.

When I took on this job—first as Project Manager, then as Operations Manager (OM!), then Executive Director, and now Program Support Coordinator—my intention was always to promote communication within the sangha, transparency in leadership, and ways for KCC sangha members to be informed. I hope I have achieved some success in that direction. I have much gratitude for the support I’ve received along the way.

I want to thank all of you for being my guides along this dharmic path. This job became my practice. I have learned to listen and appreciate everyone’s contribution to the whole. I have learned to not only accept but to appreciate and encourage our differences of opinion and ways of doing things. I have grown up spiritually in this supportive environment as there has been opportunity to use the tools of my practice at every turn (thanks for all the reminders!). What a treasure!

I intend to continue in a volunteer role where needed and look forward to practicing with all of you. May the wisdom of the teachings shine through us!

With much love and deep respect for all of you…and with joy!

Linda Grove
