Another world is possible, with Ven. Amy Miller

Registrations are closed

As we emerge from the global Covid experience, the path may seem littered with confusion, violence, and alienation. Rather than grow dismayed by external experiences that show cruelty and heartlessness, how can we use our vulnerability to effectively channel this energy into more supportive practice? 

This program explores a path of inner transformation by being present with our pain, fear, and aversion. It incorporates mindfulness, lojong (mind training), emptiness, and self-compassion exercises to help us move through these difficult states of mind. By opening our hearts in kindness to ourselves, the potential exists for our external reality to shift more beneficially as well.

The retreat is open to all levels and there is no prerequisite. A public talk will introduce the retreat  on May 16th at 7.30pm but it is possible to take part to the retreat without attending.

Vénérable Amy has a gift to make Buddhist teachings very practical and explain how to use them in daily life. We rejoice to be once more able to listen to her and practice with her.

Venerable Amy J. Miller (Ven. Lobsang Chodren) met Buddhism at Kopan Monastery in 1987 and was ordained as a Buddhist nun in June 2000. She led numerous retreats and has been the director of several FPMT centers. She currently teaches and leads retreats and pilgrimages around the world. Her teaching schedule and other information can be found
