Akampiya has been practicing at the A.B.C for 25 years and was Ordained in 2002.
She is particularly interested in applying metta and mindfulness to the practical challenges of daily life. The possibility of our complete release from suffering and the development of our full human potential for freedom, and open hearted aliveness are strong motivations for Akampiya’s practice. She enjoys making connections with different aspects of the Dharma to help create an integrated, robust and engaging system of practice. People’s different learning styles, and the use of both the conceptual and more metaphoric and poetic methods of Dharma practice are a particular interest.
Akampiya has adult children and lives in the Women’s Community in Mt Albert. Akampiya means ‘She who is unshakable in the Five Spiritual Faculties.’
