Anushka Fernandopulle's Dharma Talks
Anushka Fernandopulle
I am a lifelong spiritual practitioner who has trained for over 20 years in the Theravada Buddhist tradition in the U.S., India and Sri Lanka. I live in an urban area and consider how the practices can translate for my fellow citizens with a busy modern life; I am most interested in bringing these ancient teachings to the contemporary world, informed by my love of creative arts, technology, politics and pop culture. I also have an MBA and am particularly interested in the practice as it relates to leadership development -- how we can each see through the things that hold us back from manifesting our unique gifts and talents in the world. I am on the Spirit Rock Teacher's Council and teach at other meditation centers, but also do a lot of teaching & coaching in tech companies, nonprofit organizations, and less overtly spiritual settings.

When we develop meditation as loving awareness, we cultivate a beautiful way of living that supports wisdom and balance. We pay attention well to what we love and we learn to be present with a warm, open gaze for whatever shows up. This kind, gentle awareness brings mindfulness and metta (lovingkindness) practice together as one. Join us to explore meditation as an act of love
