She was a regular at Dhammaloka and active in the Kaliyana Mitta group of young Buddhists.

Kindfulness, by Ajahn Brahm

Publisher Tim McNeill has returned from a very successful Frankfurt Book Fair. The highlight was a preemptive bid for the new Ajahn Brahm title Kindfulness by the same German publisher who has enjoyed a run of bestseller status of Brahm's previous works in German.
