Our previous Webinar : ‘Set Free’  :  A Journey into Buddhism'  with Emma Slade         We heard the  remarkable story of the British banker who became a Tibetan Buddhist nun   Emma was a high-flyer in the world of finance, who, after a truly terrifying event was set on a path that led her to become a  nun.  She found her teacher in Bhutan;  she became the first western woman to ordain in that country.   She also founded a charity ‘Opening Your Heart to Bhutan’.    Find the video and the link to the transcript of this Webinar on our Youtube Channel.

Sakyadhita International was formed in 1987 in Bodhgaya India under the patronage of HH the Dalai Lama. It seeks to build community to benefit Buddhist women and nuns, to reduce gender injustice and awaken women to their potential.

Every two years Sakyadhita International organises a conference where Buddhists- Sangha and laypeople -  come together to share issues affecting Buddhist women and the wider society.  Because pf Covid 19 the 2020  Conference was delayed and will now be held digitally Dec 26-28th 2021. 

The Australian branch was formed after the Indonesian Conference in 2015. It has national representation and is affiliated with Sakyadhita International.
