Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo talks about how to integrate practice into daily life and injecting meaning into everyday activities.

Tenzin Palmo is famous for leaving England at the age of 20, based on an intuitive feeling to look for “her teacher.” She was one of the first westerners to ordain in the Tibetan tradition, and eventually spent 12 years in a cave doing intensive, solitary retreat in the Himalayas. In a book about her experience, entitled Cave in the Snow: Tenzin Palmo’s Quest for Enlightenment, she mentions that all that time during retreat is meant to familiarize oneself with certain ways of thinking, so someone can eventually bring that into daily life.
