I began began practice in the Shambhala community in 1983, and have attended and or lead many retreat programs including dathun, solitary retreat, Shambhala Training retreats, and Scorpian Seal Assembly. I have attended and taught, with my children and grandchildren, at Family Camp for 20-some years. Part of my practice is as an active member of our Pioneer Valley Shambhala Center Social Justice group and service as a shastri, or senior teacher, in our center.
I have worked as a public school educator for 20 years. I am particularly interested in Universal Design for learning,equitable access to mathematics learning, and the place of meditation, ritual and ceremony in transforming family habitual patterns.

My purpose for attending this conference is to help further a welcoming presence for diverse children and families in Shambhala. Specifically, I am interested in how we welcome and train teens and young adults who wish to live an awake, socially conscience, and compassionate life.
I would like to offer what insight I gain from this conference to the Family Camp mandala, my local sangha, and my public school colleagues,
