Jetsunma Jamyang Yeshe Palmo
Lighting the Path
through Loss and Grief
Saturday, June 4
10:00 a.m. ~ 12:00 p.m. PST on Zoom
How do we understand the loss of self that results from the loss of a loved one? How can we learn to practice with the disorientation of grief, and also help others who are bereaved? We can be prepared for our transitions, while helping each other weather the impact that loss and isolation can have. Jetsunma Palmo will lead us through this labyrinth and offer guidance for healing, from the perspectives of both Vajrayana Buddhism and Western psychology. This profound teaching is suitable for everyone.

Jetsunma Jamyang Yeshe Palmo completed nine years of retreat and nine years of formal study at Ngagyur Nyingma Institute under HH Penor Rinpoche. She was recognized by Sakya Trizin as the reincarnation of Freda Bedi, who helped bring Buddhism into the west in the early 1970's. Sister Palmo, as she was known in her previous lifetime, was the first women to receive full ordination in the west on the urging of HH the 16th Karmapa. Jetsunma was enthroned by Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche, and has been the primary teacher at Turquoise Leaf nunnery in Nepal. She has also studied philosophy in the US and has a degree in Western psychology.
