Practicing at the Crossroads

Martine Batchelor

Go back to the Tricycle | Buddhist Geeks page.

Judson Brewer

Martine Batchelor was a nun in a Korean Buddhist monastery for 10 years, where she followed a traditional path of practice and exploration. We speak about her journey in becoming a nun, the rhythms of that life, the practices she undertook, and how she came to integrate—and deepen—the understanding she uncovered during her decade of training there.

The episode concludes with a compelling conversation about the multi-perspectival nature of human beings, and how we’re constantly practicing at a crossroads between various aspects of our lives.

This is Part 1 of a two-part series.
