About Chieko:

I was delighted to be asked to take part in this project, having lived in the midst of (and been inspired by) creative individuals my entire life. I am also grateful for a treasured opportunity to connect with our community when family responsibilities are keeping me home bound. Seattle Unity has been part of my life since 1980 when Scott and Judy Sherman were leading the congregation; I was also married in our beloved old chapel in 1982. Unity teachings have endured as a core component of my spiritual practice ever since those early days, providing solid ground through myriad life challenges!
