We are delighted to welcome Venerable Amy Miller for her Annual Spring visit to Canada this April!
PLEASE NOTE: There has been a change in venue for Ven. Amy Miller's Public Talk and weekend Workshop from Holy Cross Lutheran Church to East Plains United Church, 375 Plains Rd E, Burlington.
She will be with us from April 27th to 29th and the structure of the weekend is as follows:
* Public Talk - Friday, April 27 - 7 to 9pm
* 2 Day Workshop - Saturday, April 28, 9 to 5pm; & Sunday, April 29, 1 to 5pm
The Tibetan Buddhist tradition of lam rim, meaning the stages of the path to enlightenment, organizes all of the teachings of the Buddha into a logical, practical order that shows where to start and how to progress on the spiritual path. It is a path of study, contemplation and meditation that leads us from the chaos of our everyday lives to the pinnacle of our spiritual potential, and is useful for Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike. The Friday night Public Talk will provide a spiritual and philosophical foundation for finding peace and meaning in our lives. Saturday and Sunday will combine teaching, discussion, mindfulness techniques and meditation to develop our basis for contemplation and ignite our practice.
Cost: Public Talk - by Donation
For your enjoyment, a vegetarian lunch is included on Saturday, and healthy snacks are available both days.

Ven. Amy Miller (Ven. Lobsang Chodren) has been teaching extensively since 1992. She was ordained as a Buddhist nun in June 2000 by the great Tibetan master, Ven. Choden Rinpoche. Amy's teaching style emphasizes a practical approach to integrating Buddhist philosophy into everyday life which led her to co-authoring the book, Buddhism in a Nutshell. Amy is happy to help people connect with meditation and mindfulness in an effort to gain a refreshing perspective on normally stressful living. Presently, Amy teaches around the world and is the Director of Milarepa Center in the state of Vermont.
