June 2011 I enjoyed attending a Western Buddhist Teacher’s Conference this month in New York with many amazing teachers from the US, Canada, and Europe, lay and monastic. This is a rare gathering that last happened 10 years ago, when it was attended by the Dalai Lama among others. It reminded me of the importance of connecting with wise people who can inspire you about the possibilities of human transformation. I also attended my 20th college reunion this past month at Harvard University, where I was inspired by all the incredible things my classmates and other alumni/ae are doing in the world in so many fields– business, technology, arts, politics. I am feeling blessed and inspired by both these gatherings….
