has been meditating since 1990, first in the Christian tradition, then in the Burmese mindfulness tradition, and now in the "pointing-out" style of Tibetan Mahamudra. Her teachers include Daniel Brown and Rahob Tulku, Thupten Kalsang Rinpoche. She has taught meditation retreats since 1998.
This workshop presents an integrative approach to the practice of Mahamudra meditation, as developed by Daniel Brown. It is designed for everyone—those new to meditation and experienced meditators. The course begins with an emphasis on intensive concentration meditation according to the Indo-Tibetan Nine States of Mental Calming/Staying, followed by an introduction to classic Tibetan emptiness meditation. A balance of mental stabilization and emptiness practices serves as a foundation for the “extraordinary” or essence meditation practices.
