I was ordained in beautiful Taraloka in 1990 and I feel a special appreciation that we have a place within Triratna created for and by women. 

White Tara was the practice that I took on and even when I have forget her it seems that she is always there to return to - always as near as my next breath. 

Wether I am teaching in the context of secular mindfulness or within Triratana - it is the receptive qualities of spaciousness, allowing and letting go - so embodied by White Tara - that I find myself coming back to again and again.
