On 8 January, Ven. Canda was invited to talk about her spiritual journey at Jill Satterfield’s yoga teacher training course in San Francisco. Jill takes a deeply meditative, integrative approach to yoga, and this was evident in her student’s depth of interest in meditation and the topics discussed. These topics included reconciling science and religious dogmatism, finding ones path, and working with doubt. The talk, as well as a guided body sweep is available through our YouTube channel.
Brave Vero has pledged to have her head shaved for her 29th birthday in April to raise funds for Anukampa Bhikkhuni Project. Her donation webpage is live if you would like to give and all funds raised go towards establishing a monastery for bhikkhunis (fully ordained nuns) in the UK.
