Tantra in America, a scholar-practitioners story

Hundere Lecture by Kimberley Lafferty

Thursday, May 25, 2017 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Many of the highly secret esoteric teachings from around the globe, once held protected within religious organizations, are now available. Due to their unveiling, Eastern contemplative traditions have been embraced by the West. Through research and storytelling, this discussion will examine how these pre-modern traditions have integrated into western educated culture. It will also explore how the modern understanding of the entire evolutionary process can complement pre-modern religious traditions under a single clear vision of tantric practice in the United States.

Kimberley Lafferty is a teacher, writer, mother and wife. She has spent twenty-five years studying and teaching Tibetan Buddhism, Himalayan yoga tantra and western integral theory. She founded and directed a non-profit adult education company that certified hundreds of yoga teachers around the world.
