Based at the North London centre, where she teaches meditation and dharma study, Maitrisambhava was ordained in 2017.  A mother of 2 adult children, Maitrisambhava has a passion for classical music, making ceramics and gardening as well as the dharma. Metta and the other Brahma Viharas have played a central role in her practice right from the beginning.
