Join us for a meditation and dharma talk, to be presented tonight by Diana Levy. Tonight Diana will be speaking on the subject of, “How does my practise help in an emergency? “
Diana Levy is a writer who also loves to create cabbages, potatoes, and oranges. Her dharma practise started with zen teacher Robert Aitken Roshi forty-odd years ago, and since then she’s been a zen practitioner with teachers in the Diamond Sangha lineage, including Subhana Barzhagi, Gillian Coote, John Tarrant, and fellow travellers such as Thich Nhat Hanh and Joanna Macy. She has also studied in the insight and Theravada traditions, mainly with Patrick Kearney. Living in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, she’s led walks for writers of haiku, for meditators and just for fun. She is particularly keen on writing short grabs about nature (haiku) and has nearly finished a ‘travel’ haibun “Walking the Blue: walks in Gundungurra country”. She has two children, has been published in Australia, Japan and the U.S.
