About Buddhist Parenting (inactive)


About the authors 


Summer Adams was born in California and lives at Chagdud Gonpa Brazil’s main center, Khadro Ling. She was introduced to the Buddhist teachings at a young age while accompanying her parents to many ceremonies and teachings. In August 2000, Summer traveled to Khadro Ling to complete a retreat of Vajrayana preliminary practices under the guidance of Chagdud Rinpoche and his wife, Chagdud Khadro. She originally planned to stay only a few months, but after engaging in a sequence of retreats became a full-time volunteer, and has served the activities of the Gonpa ever since. Now the mother of two lively young daughters, she continues to dedicate her time to volunteer work, practice, and study.


Heather Sanche is a practicing Buddhist who is applying the principles and practice of the Buddhadharma in her new journey of motherhood.
