For the month of February, the Rothko Chapel presents a meditation on the topic of "Stewardship" in the Zen Buddhist tradition, led by Mary Carol Edwards.

About the presenter:
Mary Carol is a lay entrusted dharma teacher at the Houston Zen Center. After exploring various faith traditions, she began practicing Zen Buddhism in the Soto lineage in 1998. She also has a calling for environmental restoration, particularly wetlands. She was a stormwater wetland specialist for Texas A&M Extension Service for 8 years, and recently started on a new path as a wetland plant farmer. Mary Carol has deep roots in Texas as a 9th generation native, and loves to see nature and the dharma flourishing in Houston.

About the series:
Since September 2005, on the first Wednesday of each month at 12pm, the Rothko Chapel hosts a contemplative practice focusing on different spiritual or faith traditions featuring teachers and religious leaders from throughout the greater Houston community. This series provides opportunities for visitors to learn more about specific spiritual and faith traditions and experience a contemplative practice.
