Lama Palden photoHow can the relationship between a teacher and student, or therapist and client, facilitate the unfolding of spiritual development and realization? How can we, as teachers or therapists, support the flowering of the Innate Wisdom and Love in our students or clients.

Through both a talk and experiential exercises to begin the 2018 Nondual Wisdom and Psychology Conference, Lama Palden explores all four of these roles from her experience of inhabiting each over the last 30-40 years. She discusses themes of integrity, clarity, appropriate trust, and how we can support the Innate Pure Being of our students and clients while at the same time holding space for the messiness of human experience.
