Practice

I learned how to meditate in June 2015 at Shambhala Mountain Center. Since then, I have been meditating regularly in group sits, alone sits, and walking and eating meditation. I feel blessed to be living at Shambhala Mountain Center...I have been fortunate to take wisdom classes and expand my understanding and development in the past two years.

About

I am a recovering Registered Nurse. I love taking care of people. My favorite part about being a nurse was sitting on patients' beds at 3:00 a.m. and listening to life stories that made me laugh and cry. I appreciate all walks of life. I come from the Space of Wisdom--from here I am able to understand all religions and no religion.

Main teachers

Jesus Christ, Guatama Buddha, Maitreya, Krishna, The Ascended Masters, Pema Chodron, Adyashanti, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, my Heart, every bit of matter in effect from every cause affecting this body this life

Purpose

I cannot manifest outer Peace until I manifest inner Peace. I am so close <3. I am longing for the structure and discipline of a monastic life--the guidance of nurturing solitude--the opportunity to study and practice all day like it's my job! Life is short! i want to get as much out of this heart and breath before the last beat and sigh. I am so grateful for this opportunity!
