Gabe Paulson has been a member of Unity since 2004 and Unity in Marin since 2007. He has served as a prayer chaplain for 6.5 years and currently started as an associate member of the Board of Trustees. His spiritual beginnings we in the Russian Orthodox Church with many years spent in the Buddhist tradition (largely at Spirit Rock). Some alternative spiritual explorations have been through travel (47 countries) and music. As the owner of a software business and a former real estate broker and contractor, his vision for Unity in Marin is implementing a wise balance between Unity as a sanctuary and Unity as a business.
