Ajahn Thanasanti's Website
Amma Thanasanti Bhikkhuni was born in California and first encountered the Dhamma in 1979. Since that time she has been committed to awakening. On a trip to Asia she met highly accomplished meditation masters Ajahn Chah, Ajahn Buddhadasa and Dipa Ma. In 1989, she went to England where she joined the nun’s community in the Ajahn Chah Forest Tradition. After 20 years she left her monastic community to return to the USA where she founded Awakening Truth whose mission is eventually developing a Bhikkhuni training monastery integrating ancient teachings of the Forest Tradition into the modern world. Currently she is based at the Shakti Vihara hermitage near the Garden of the Gods in Colorado, where she uses wilderness as a daily part of her practice.

2015-05-23 Love Sex, and Awakening 46:23
Ajahn (Amma) Thanasanti's personal journey and interest in the topic. Believing enlightenment is where everyone loves me. Various kinds of suffering. The way that Dipa Ma's life was an inspiration. The hunger to connect and the way that love and sex can be used for connection. Sex as life force. Separation and dissolving into pleasure vs dissolving into emptiness. Love and sex addiction underlying other addictions. The difference between mind states that resolve with observation and those that need engagement. Attachment theory. Pleasure evokes lack. Making use of the complexity.
