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. All Humanitou episodes and more at humanitou.co.
