Let’s Get Real !! Who are these people ?!

Ani Pema Chodrun (photo from Gampo Abbey web site) is the principal teacher at the Tibetan Buddhist Gampo Abbey in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Per her web site:

Ani Pema Chödrön was born Deirdre Blomfield-Brown in 1936, in New York City. She attended Miss Porter’s School in Connecticut and graduated from the University of California at Berkeley. She taught as an elementary school teacher for many years in both New Mexico and California. Pema has two children and three grandchildren.

She has written several books: The Wisdom of No EscapeStart Where You AreWhen Things Fall ApartThe Places that Scare YouNo Time to LosePracticing Peace in Times of War and most recently Taking the Leap – Freeing Ourselves from Old Habits and Fears.

I am reading ( slowly ) Comfortable with Uncertainty by Pema Chodrun. She has also been on some television shows and you can also see her on You Tube:

Troublemaker Teachers
On Bill Moyers

Pema Chodrun speaks clearly to our modern current world existential problems. Listen to the videos above or read one of her books. She has us in her sights!

 Khentrul Rinpoche

Khentrul Lodrö Thayé Rinpoche (photo from Katog Choling web site) is the abbot of Katog Mardo Tashi Choling in Eastern Tibet. Katog Choling is a Buddhist organization under the direction of Khentrul Lodrö Thaye Rinpoche.
The link below gives an overview of Rinpoche’s objectives and methodology.
I have attended 3 days of teachings and through his most excellent interpreter, Paloma, his discussions and logic help to better understand consciousness and its relationship to our existence.  I recommend any of the materials on the web site as well as attend the monthly livestream webcasts. I have also attended 4 hours of those webcasts and they were just so great, what can I say.
