(Rev.) Jaki Fisher studied Tibetan Buddhism in Arizona. She led 2 of our previous Fire Purification ceremonies with positive feedback and with the participants asking for more and regular sessions. She is currently studying meditation with John Yates and has recently completed a two-year Buddhist chaplaincy program from Upaya Zen Center.

They say the end of the year is a time of reflection: a time to slow down; detach from the busyness of everyday life; take stock of the year gone by and think about where you want the next year to go.
2014 for me personally, and, I think, for ASC, has been a year of growth and learning. We have been blessed with many teachings, from both our home lamas and visiting teachers and we have blossomed alongside one another as spiritual friends and as members of a larger community. I feel truly grateful to have been able to witness and be present (physically and virtually) for the journey that has been this year.
May your holidays be filled with warmth and joy.
Let love abound, over and behind all else.
