Poet and philosopher D. Britton Gildersleeve, Ph.D., is a professor at Oklahoma State University, a published author and a former reporter at the Tulsa World newspaper. Raised in far corners of the world since her father was in the U.S. foreign service, she brings to Beliefnet a truly unique perspective on the world, which she describes as Buddhist/Unitarian. However, she worries that neither the Buddhists nor the Unitarians will be quick to endorse her views, which she explains come from “a beginner’s heart.”
