Join us for a special weekend of programs with Amma Thanasanti. (Amma) Thanasanti Bhikkhuni first encountered the Dhamma in 1979, and in 1989, she joined the nun’s community in the Ajahn Chah Forest Tradition and lived there for 20 years. In 2009 she left her monastic community to return to the US to pursue her vision of developing a Bhikkhuni training monastery integrating ancient teachings of the Forest Tradition into the modern world. She founded Awakening Truth, a tax-deductible religious charity dedicated to this vision. In 2010, she received ordination in the first Theravada dual Bhikkhuni ordination in North America with Ayya Tathaaloka as her preceptor. Currently she resides in Colorado Springs at the Shakti Vihara hermitage.
Amma’s work spans rigorous understanding of Buddhist teachings, depth psychology, subtle body somatics, non-dual meditation and the Divine Feminine. She teaches meditation as an art and skill, integrating body, heart and mind with finesse and compassion.
