From the Teachers

A moment of enlightenment is a moment when we realize "the blessings that are always pouring forth."
~ Lama John Makransky

Our Mission

After many years spent edging toward the inevitable, Sheila joyfully took refuge in the Buddhist path in 2005 with the unwitting support of Julie Forsythe.  At the same time, she discovered Lama John's practices of Innate Compassion and Wisdom, by whose power and blessings she ha been held ever since.  She has since had the opportunity of attending a number of retreats with Lama John and Lama Willa Miller.  Sheila now lives and works in rural Maine, but in the 1990's she and her husband were fortunate enough to sail around the world, a journey that made clear through direct experience that all people are indeed "just like me", no matter the cultural overlays.  Sheila is a teacher in the Blue Hill Group.
