Humanitou: Conversations of Humanness + Creativity
05: Ayya Dhammadhira, Buddhist nun, on loss and impermanence, letting go and a quest for deeper knowing
/

Sister Ayya Dhammadhira is a Bhikkhuni, a fully ordained Buddhist nun, who has lived, worked and practiced in Buddhist monasteries around the world -- and now does so independently -- these past 20 or so years. We talk about Ayya’s upbringing in a Catholic family and the family tragedy that sent her inward with her spiritual questions at 12 years old. We talk about what carried Ayya from her young adult life as a married school teacher across the transom from layperson to ordained Buddhist monastic. We talk about her family’s reaction to this radical shift, too. Among other things. More at humanitou.com.
