Thanks to everyone who came out last weekend to see Lama Kathy at Kaleisia Tea and the Tampa Bay Retreat Center!
We had a wonderful conversation on both the profound and nitty-gritty aspects of compassion, and everyone benefited from the deep and widely ranging discussion. The conversation continued all weekend, with great feelings of fellowship and deepened understanding of this most important topic.
If you weren’t able to attend, don’t worry – we’re already planning another weekend with Lama Kathy very soon, so stay tuned! We’ll announce on Facebook and in the website as soon as we have our dates.
A brief biography of Lama Kathy Wesley from her website, here.
Kathy Wesley (Lama Gyurme Chötsö) has been a student of Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche since 1977. She participated in the first three-year retreat led by Khenpo Rinpoche at Karmé Ling Retreat Center in upstate New York, and thus earned the title of ‘retreat lama.’ Lama Kathy now serves as Resident Teacher at the Columbus Karma Thegsum Chöling and travels to teach at other Buddhist centers throughout the country. Kathy is a graduate of Ohio State University with a bachelor’s degree in journalism. She and her husband Mike live in Newark, Ohio.
