Amma Thanasanti will give a dharma talk entitled Form Emerging from the Formless this coming Sunday. She will only be in this area for a short time, so take advantage of this rare opportunity if you can.

Amma Thanasanti Bhikkhuni has more than 30 years experience with Insight Meditation. She joined the Amaravati Buddhist Monastery in 1989, was ordained in 1991, and was fully ordained as a Bhikkhuni in 2010 in the first dual Theravada Bhikkhuni ordination in North America. She has been teaching internationally since 1996.

After many years of being part of the leadership teams of Chithurst and Amaravati nun’s communities in England, Amma let go of her formal affiliation with those monasteries in 2009 to pursue her vision of how monastic and lay practitioners can work together to create viable communities for practice in the West. She currently lives on faith according to the ancient principle of alms mendicancy, traveling and teaching around the world where she is invited, working to awaken wisdom and compassion.

A dana offering is requested. Amma Thanasanti especially needs firewood for the cabin in which she is currently staying.

Amma Thanasanti is an inspiring speaker, and this we are very much looking forward to sharing this opportunity with as many of you as possible. If you have any question, you can call us at (734) 761-6520.
