Dharma Talks and Retreats Upon Request at Your Location
Tina is available to give dharma talks or lead retreats at your location. For a sample of Tina’s dharma talks, or to view videos, please visit the Dharma Talks page. If you or your sangha are interested in organizing a retreat or dharma talk for Tina to lead, please contact us directly as found on the Contacts Us page.

Here’s what students have to say about Tina’s events:

  • “I’ve deepened my practice more than ever, due to the clarity of the teaching.”
  • “My faith in Buddhism has been deepened to a degree previously unimaginable, but is tempered by a profound sobriety of mind and wisdom. Every word of the dharma talks penetrated the core of my being and accelerated my practice.”
  • “If I was to describe this to a friend, I would call it ‘Jedi mind training!’”
  • “I have seen more changes in myself from two years of concentration practice than in the previous 20 years of various meditation practices.”
  • “It will rock your world!”
  • “I feel more confident in my approach to the Anapanasati / samatha practice, and how to navigate the varied terrain as well.”
  • “Your dedication to the dharma is so inspiring to me. You’ve given me the courage to embrace my true path in life. Your efforts and example have given me a clarity that is truly miraculous. Thank you for all your hard work.”
