The Wisdom Seat Welcomes Venerable Tenzin Dasel

Two Events: April 14 and 15

Tsunma Tenzin Dasel, born Lisa V. Blake, became a Tibetan Buddhist nun at mid-life after a career in education and social justice. Her interest in a spiritual life began early in her life through a love of the outdoors and questioning the suffering she witnessed around her. This led to a search for deeper meaning and purpose and formal study of meditation in the Buddhist tradition, culminating in enrolling in theological seminary and becoming ordained by His Holiness Dalai Lama as a Tibetan Buddhist nun in 2017.   
She is spiritual director of Tashi Gatsel Ling in Maine and former attendant to Jetsunma Palmo Rinpoche, (author of four books, including Heroic Heart: A Commentary on the 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva). She is co-director of the Alliance of Non-Himalayan Nuns (ANHN). She travels widely leading meditation workshops and retreats in the US and internationally, where she is appreciated for her warmth, humbleness, and sense of humor.
