Contemplative Care Instructor
Barbara started reading Buddhist books as a young teen and has not stopped. She met her root teacher, Lama Gonpo Tseten, in Conway MA and studied with him in Massachusetts, California and Tibet.
After extensive travels in Asia, living in Europe, and working as a psychiatric nurse, she is now living in residence at Wonderwell Mountain Refuge as the online programs coordinator.
Her current interests include studying Dzogchen, researching and teaching contemplative care and compassion meditation and learning as much as possible about creating and maintaining community through hosting virtual retreats.
