Since January 2017 I have started a new adventure at Gampo Abbey in the Cape Breton Highlands of Nova Scotia. I took ordination as a Buddhist nun on February 17, in the middle of a power outage but with much joy. This is not a lifelong ordination but a temporary one for at least nine months.
I am here on the Edge of North America practicing and studying the Dharma and being seduced by the amazing scene outside the window. I’m incubating art and mixing it with space.
The view of the ocean from out cliff is simply amazing. Where is Gampo Abbey you ask? Here.
Here are a few photos from the area and the ordination ceremony.
