Ven. Katy Cole Visit
May 10-18, 2017

FPMT nun Ven. Katy Cole returns to Laguna Beach for a week of introductory meditation, practice classes, pujas, and more. In each meditation class Ven. Katy will cover basic meditation techniques and then lead participants through a guided meditation, based on Ven. Sangye Khadro’s classic book, How to Meditate. In our half-day retreat we will focus on meditations and practices to purify negative karma.

Originally from Perth, Western Australia, Ven. Katy Cole has a Masters in Clinical Psychology and has been a Buddhist nun for 12 years. She ordained with His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala in 2004. Since 2003, Ven. Katy has served in a variety of positions supporting Lama Zopa Rinpoche‘s FPMT: as Liberation Prison Project‘s spiritual program coordinator and chaplain coordinator and on LPP’s US Board of Directors; as one of the monastics at Rinpoche’s home in Aptos, looking after the hundreds offerings completed there everyday; and as assistant to the caretaker at Lawudo Gompa, Rinpoche’s family’s home and FPMT retreat center in the Nepalese Himalayas. In 2008 Ven. Katy completed a one-year retreat at FPMT’s De-Tong Ling Retreat Centre on Kangaroo Island, just south of Adelaide in South Australia. She has also completed several retreats at Lawudo Gompa, as well as various Vipassana retreats for 10 years before meeting her Tibetan Buddhist teachers.
