About the Event

August 22 Guest Teacher: Vicki Cahill

Dharma Topic:  Refuge and bodhicitta, the foundation of our practice

Taking refuge is the way we begin our prayers. We will be exploring the deep meaning of the refuge prayer and examining meditation points for developing bodhicitta.


Vicki Cahill began her study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism in 1995 with Losang Samten at the Tibetan Buddhist Center in Philadelphia. At the Tibetan Buddhist Center, Vicki had the opportunity to study with teachers from Nyingma, Kagyu, and Gelug lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. It was here that she met Gelek Rimpoche in 1996, at his teachings of the Three Principal of the Path. Vicki became Gelek Rimpoche’s student and subsequently a member of Jewel Heart. In addition to continuing her study with Losang, she has attended weekly teachings at Jewel Heart and annual Jewel Heart retreats. Vicki became a facilitator for Jewel Heart and ran Jewel Heart courses at the Philadelphia Meditation Center and various other locations throughout the Philadelphia area over the years. In 2015 she was invited to join the Buddhist Chaplaincy training program at Jewel Heart, which she completed in 2017. Beginning in July 2016 and continuing until the Prison closed to volunteers due to the pandemic in March 2020, Vicki led classes on meditation and awareness training at the Philadelphia Department of Prisons. These classes were attended by adult males in maximum security, adult females, and juveniles. In 2018, she became a Buddhist chaplaincy extern at Pennsylvania Hospital, and she continued with another externship in 2019 at HUP. Vicki is honored to have been a guest speaker at the Tibetan Buddhist Center.
