Upcoming Winter Retreat at the Beach

Hello dear ones! I am excited to announce that we are doing another Winter Buddhist Retreat at the beach. Last year’s retreat was powerful, transformative and heart-warming to another level. I yearn to do that more often! And here we are again. It will be from Dec 19th – 30th. I am assisting in the […]

visiting Pittsburgh, time with Tibetan Lamas

I just recently got back from a trip to Pittsburgh, PA.  It is closer to Charlottesville than I was thinking, so I will try to head up there once a year if it is easy. On Saturday there was an empowerment by H.E. Tritsab Rinpoche (Chenrezig).  That day was a lot of driving, so I […]

Unpacking from a potent weekend

I just returned from a weekend with His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon, Chetsang Rinpoche.  I will post pictures soon (hopefully). I am in the midst of one of the busiest times of my life as I prep to enter nursing school this summer and in the fall.  My next day off with nothing on my […]

a Spiritual Master’s advice

I recently purchased Garchen Rinpoche’s biography, or Book One anyway.  I am slowly reading through it, and thoroughly enjoying it.  I just want to share some of Gar Rinpoche’s advice.  I should mention that I believe this is incredibly wise advise, but each individual is unique in our karmic predispositions, so I would recommend seeking […]

North Carolina pilgrimage in Asheville

Who’d’ve thunk it? Going on a Buddhist pilgrimage in North Carolina… Well that’s right! One does not instantly think of Buddhism when N.C. is mentioned. But I am here to attend teachings by Khenpo Choephel at Urban Dharma in Asheville NC. And to rest down in the midst of everything! Picking up Khenpo from the […]

off to retreat

Hello to all (any of?) my wonderful readers, I am headed up to Maryland this afternoon, for eight days of resting down and back into a vast mandala of healing wisdom. There is an annual retreat held at the Tibetan Meditation Center. This year, the focus will be on the practice of Chenrezig (Avalokitesvara) and […]

Clear Light in Virginia Beach

Driving down to Va Beach to attend Drupon Thinley Ningpo, my heart teacher and root lama. What a blessing – no matter what he is teaching on. Early December, no telling what the weather will bring, but not expecting anything spectacular. As I transit past Richmond and beyond Williamsburg, the leaves are still aflame – […]
