Annie Nugent has practiced since 1979 and was an IMS Resident Teacher, 1999-2003. Her teaching style aims to reveal how all aspects of our lives can help us come to a clear and direct understanding of the Truth.
How our thoughts keep us imprisoned in delusion until we recognize their empty, impermanent nature... brings with it the carefree ease of a mind that does not need to have a comment about every arising. The mind rests at peace.
These four reflections on the precious human body, impermanence and death, the law of Karma and the round of Samsara support our practice by helping the mind turn towards the Dharma and away from our deeply habituated tendencies of greed, hatred and delusion.
Gratitude comes when we appreciate life as a gift from which we can learn, discover
and come to understand the Truth of existence. Seeing the scope of the
Buddhadharma allows for gratitude to come to the fore... because we see that the teachings work...oh joy!
