Can we open to the idea that our minds are grounded in Buddha nature? Can we entertain the paradox that our thoughts, words and deeds might not always demonstrate that . . . and chuckle? There’s potential!
Living with the paradox of daily life is a brilliant chance to practice if we have skillful, 21st century tools. We’ll explore a range of these — formal and informal practice, wholesome community engagement and whatever your questions and concerns bring forth.
Bonni began exploring the teachings of liberation in the early sixties.
In the mid 70’s she met her principal teacher, Venerable Namgyal
Rinpoche, whose direct, eclectic teaching and example are central to
her life. The encouragement of His Holiness the 16th Karmapa,
teachings from many great Buddhist masters, and innovative westerners have had direct influence, as well as artists, composers, scientists, poets, dancers, philosophers and mystery writers too numerous to mention. Her inspiration comes from “ordinary” people who demonstrate exceptional courage and compassion in the midst of great suffering.
