Kirsten Kratz's Dharma Talks
Kirsten Kratz
Kirsten Kratz has practiced Buddhist meditation in Asia and the West since 1993. She started teaching in 2006 and since 2015 she has been ‘teacher in residence’ supporting those on personal retreat at Gaia House. Her love and understanding of Dharma has been strongly influenced by, among others, the teachings of her friend and teacher colleague, Rob Burbea. One of her particular passions is exploring how wisdom teachings can foster appropriate responses to the challenges of our time, and Kirsten sees her involvement in activism as an important expression of her practice. Kirsten is co-initiator of the “Dharma Action Network for Climate Engagement” (DANCE) and supporting teacher of Freely Given Retreats.

An introduction to what will be explored on the retreat: looking at ways how we may construct the self; exploring how we can open up limiting 'senses of self' and reduce the suffering they bring, by using the Buddhist teachings on ‘not self' as liberating ways of seeing; experiencing the poetry and dance of 'self' that is beyond any fixed definition.
