What Goes Around, Comes Around: How Karma Works

Have you ever wondered why bad things happen to good people?

Join this lively workshop to understand the workings of karma and how some small positive adjustments in life can move you to a more peaceful and happier experience.

Amy J. Miller (Ven. Lobsang Chodren) first encountered Tibetan Buddhism in the spring of 1987 during a course at Kopan Monastery in Nepal. Since then, she has spent a great deal of time engaged in meditation retreats, study, teaching, and Buddhist center management throughout the world. Amy was ordained as a Buddhist nun in June 2000 by the great Tibetan master, Ven. Choden Rinpoche, and has been teaching extensively since 1992. Her teaching style emphasizes a practical approach to integrating Buddhist philosophy into everyday life. She is happy to help people connect with meditation and mindfulness in an effort to gain a refreshing perspective on normally stressful living. She has an emphasis on courses focused on death and dying, overcoming anxiety and depression, battling addiction, and dealing with self-esteem issues.

Amy is the co-author of Buddhism in a Nutshell, and a contributor to Living in the Path, a series of online courses produced by FPMT.
