Like a doctor, the Buddha approached the problem of human suffering by naming it, identifying it’s cause and sharing his insights on how to be free of suffering and the path to take to do this. Host Marlena Willis talks with retired public health physician and Buddhist teacher, Margarita Loinaz, about how her work as a doctor influenced her spirituality and how she sees spirituality can influence our work to create a healthier world for all.
Margarita Loinaz is a retired public health physician and Buddhist teacher with the East Bay Meditation Center . She has trained in both the Theravadan and Tibetan traditions. Her current teachings center on the integration of the Great Perfection teachings with social and environmental awareness.
