ABOUT THE MEDITATION CLASS
Join us for two sessions of meditation led by Venerable Yönten. Explore ways in which to deepen your meditation practice, as well as practical expectations for your own growth on your meditation path. If you are brand new to meditation, you will have Ven. Yönten to skillfully lead you through the process. If you are a long time practitioner join us in lending your grounded meditative energy to the group as we delve deep together towards samadhi.
Bhikshuni Lozang Yönten is an American-born Buddhist nun in the Tibetan tradition who was ordained in 2003. A practicing Buddhist since 1994, Venerable Yönten moved to Chenrezig Institute in Australia and studied intensively under Khensur Rinpoche Geshe Tashi Tsering (Lharampa Geshe from Sera Je Monastery and former Abbot of Gyü-me Tanric College) from 2002 – 2009, completing their Buddhist Studies Program. She then continued to study, retreat and offer service at DharmaCenters in India and Taiwan as well as Australia and New Zealand, becoming an In-Depth Registered Teacher within the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) in 2012.
Ven. Yönten was the Resident Teacher of Kunsang Yeshe Retreat Centre in the Blue Mountains of Australia from 2012 – 2015 before becoming teacher-in-residence six months of the year at Mahamudra Centre for Universal Unity in New Zealand until 2018. She has just arrived to Land of Medicine Buddha to be one of our resident teachers for six months out of the year, to allow her to honor her other teaching engagements worldwide.
Currently, Ven. Yönten divides her time as a touring teacher and retreat leader, as well as annually offering the Buddhadharma from a secular perspective in Israel as a member of the Buddhist faculty for a seven-year post graduate program called Human Spirit which is a Buddhist Psychoanalytic Training Program.
Land of Medicine Buddha is honored to have her joining the team as our newest addition of teachers. We know that new and long term students will enjoy her open and informal style. She is the type of teacher to encourage questions and debates, and is looking forward to meeting all who are involved with the community of Land of Medicine Buddha. For more info. on Ven.
