Annie Nugent has practiced since 1979 and was an IMS Resident Teacher, 1999-2003. Her teaching style aims to reveal how all aspects of our lives can help us come to a clear and direct understanding of the Truth.

Resolve played a major role in the Buddha's enlightenment. Consequently we can see the importance of this quality in our own practice. This talk details it's meaning and how to develop and incorporate it into our practice - propelling us ever onward towards liberation
