About the Event

Every Sunday morning we gather (via Zoom) as a sangha for meditation and dharma. All welcome! August 15 special guest teacher: Ven. Amy Miller

Open to all levels.

Topic: The Path to Joy

Join Venerable Amy Miller as she offers a practical roadmap of how to cultivate happiness and overcome suffering in the midst of life’s challenges. Interweaving the “Steps on the Path” (Lam Rim), the foundational philosophy of Tibetan Buddhism, with The Book of Joy (discussions with His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu), this teaching explores the eight pillars of joy (perspective, humility, humor, acceptance, forgiveness, gratitude, compassion, and generosity) along with the realistic tools necessary to undertake that journey.

Amy J. Miller (Ven. Lobsang Chodren) first encountered Buddhism in 1987 at Kopan Monastery in Nepal and has been ordained since 2000. She has spent a great deal of time engaged in meditation retreats, study, teaching, and Buddhist center management. Prior to studying Buddhism, Amy was a political fundraiser in Washington, DC and also worked for Mother Jones Magazine in San Francisco, California. She also trained as a hospice counselor during the peak of the AIDS epidemic in San Francisco and offers courses and retreats on death and dying and end-of-life care.

Amy also leads pilgrimages to Buddhist sites. The next trip will be a trek in the spring of 2022 to Lawudo Retreat Center in the Mount Everest region of Nepal. A 3-day retreat will be included along with a visit to Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s birthplace. See her website below for more information.

Amy’s teaching style helps people connect with meditation and mindfulness in an effort to gain a refreshing perspective on normally stressful living.

She is also the co-author of FPMT’s Buddhism in a Nutshell. For more information on Amy’s teaching schedule and courses, see www.AmyMiller.com. Amy currently resides in Philadelphia in the United States.
