I began my Buddhist practice in 2010 in the Mahayana tradition; once I found Insight Meditation South Bay, I realized that Theravada practice is my spiritual home. After attending regularly for a while, I began my volunteer work with IMSB by coordinating a talk and book signing special event with a guest teacher. I’ve been glad to offer dana, both through donations and volunteering, as a way to reciprocate for these profound teachings that have been freely offered. The teachings of the Buddha, my meditation practice and volunteer efforts have enriched my daily life and given me a sense of serenity and wellness. My study and practice over several years with the brahmavihārās, particularly mettā, have been profound and have allowed me to find more ease in this world. I am beyond grateful.
