Event Details

Foundations of Peace- Through Integrity, Concentration and Wisdom

Harmlessness is the essence of integrity. When it becomes a virtue, our heart moves towards confidence. This confidence supports samadhi – stability of focus where the hindrances are not destabilizing the mind. The resulting clarity can look closely at the nature of experience and see it for what it is. Our fears, distorted perceptions, and suffering all release when we recognize the transcendent wisdom of anatta. When we let go of a solid self-nature, we let go of boundaries that keep us feeling separate and we stop believing the stories we tell ourselves about who and what we are. In this openness, the heart’s natural response is love, compassion and peace.

This event is suited for practitioners of all levels.

Amma Thanasanti

Amma Ṭhanasanti first encountered the Dharma in 1979 in a class taught by Jack Engler. In that class she was ignited by the possibility of giving her life to realize the end of suffering. Since that time, she has been committed to awakening. As a former nun of 26 years, she combines the rigor of the Ajahn Chah Forest Tradition and classical Buddhist teachings, passion for wholeness and creativity to all that she does. She emphasizes perspectives that are not confined to any religious point of view, belief system, or doctrine. Amma exudes an impersonal intimacy, full of love, joy and a curious mixture of playfulness, creativity and authority. Her style is direct, clear, compassionate and often humorous. She adept at meeting people where they are at, supporting them to find their own full life path and discover the blessings that are possible in transformation.
