Dharma Teacher, NDF Board President
Kathe was one of the founders of Haley House in 1966 when she and her husband welcomed men who were homeless into their apartment. For the next 42 years, she merged her background in Christian contemplation with service.
In the 80s she walked for peace and chanted with the Nipponzan Myohoji monks and nuns. She was introduced to Dzogchen by Sogyal Rinpoche and became a student of Lama Surya Das under whose guidance she went on a 100 day Wisdom retreat.
It is Tibetan Buddhism with its practices that turn poison into medicine – in oneself and in the world – that is her path.
