Ilona O’ConnorBoard of Directors, Guiding Teacher, Meditation Teacher
My spiritual explorations as a Catholic woman, my experience as a Catholic Worker in Boston, my interactions with patients as an inner city homecare nurse...all of these adventures prepared me to meet the practices of Innate Wisdom and Compassion...a non-dual wisdom from the Buddhist tradition. There was a deep recognition of the truth and integrity of the teachings for both my heart and my mind.
These practices allow me to open more to others, to have the inner space for more creativity, responsiveness and humor. They help me to find the freedom to be increasingly more vulnerable, curious and trusting of the power of innate compassion.
