ABOUT VENERABLE AMY

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 and lived at Land of Medicine Buddha in 1992. 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 2023 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 Santa Cruz, California.

THE KINDNESS OF DONATIONS 

If you find this event helpful, please do consider making a donation. Generosity was one of the first positive attitudes that the Buddha emphasized in his teachings. Generosity creates a healthy flow of Dharma in your life and is the cause of your own prosperity. Your donations help us offer Buddhist teachings and meditation retreats to the world, a path that can lead people out of suffering to ultimate happiness.
