Grace started life as a Catholic and departed as a Buddhist, having shared with Ernest six decades of spiritual learning and practice. Our teachers were Claudio Naranjo, Swami Muktananda, Tarthang Tulku, Dhirivamsa, Pema Chodron, and Sogyal Rinpoche. Grace also worked with Richard Moss and Brugh Joy, and participated in the Nine Gates Mystery School. More on each of these follows.
This photo is of Aunt Helen, who even at an early age delivered profound wisdom. Her body was damaged by polio yet she went on to have nine children, teaching the older ones to take care of their brothers and sisters. Grace admired her great love and perseverance.
