June was a busy month for Emma as she travelled internationally to speak at various conferences, including the 16th Sakyadhita International Conference on Buddhist Women in the Blue Mountains, Sydney Australia. Emma delivered a talk on "From Banker to Buddhist Nun in Bhutan - A few thoughts along the way"
From the Sakyadhita website: "The theme, New Horizons in Buddhism, explores changes within Buddhist circles worldwide, in response to current global concerns. What has Buddhism to offer in the face of our shared challenges? And in particular, what are the particular qualities which the female voice can bring in facing these concerns?"
