The Heart in Awakening - ONLINE
Viveka’s teaching emphasizes awakening here and now - grounded in the body, and accessed through a spacious, appreciative, curiosity. Since being ordained in 1997, she has been committed to developing Triratna’s collective teaching and practice of vipshyana (insight) in meditation.
Her teaching style is informed by over 20 years of dharma practice and long silent retreats, interaction with a diversity of Buddhist teachers and practitioners, and her work as a certified coach, facilitator, and trainer supporting people in social change movements to realize lasting transformation.
She lives in San Francisco, California where she has been Chair of the Triratna Buddhist Center since 2000.
Pasadini has been a practicing Buddhist/meditator since Y2K. She enjoys the simplicity, intimacy and honesty that meditation is/requires of her, and feels deeply honoured to be able to introduce others to meditation, and Buddhist practice. She lived at Dhanakosa for two years, and now stays in Glasgow full time and leads retreats at Dhanakosa several times a year.
Originally hailing from Eastern Canadian shores, but having spent her whole adult life in the US, until 2012, she will forgive you if you think she sounds American. Its like totally totally awesome dude.
