A counsellor for 30 years, Judy Arpana specialises in grief and loss and has extensive experience in conducting training workshops.

Judy has been a student of Buddhism for more than 30 years and has studied with many Buddhist masters. She brings to her work a vast compassion and depth of experience from both study and her work in supporting those in the process of dying.

Judy's gift is her extra-ordinary ordinariness. She brings a natural humour and warmth to challenging themes, which allows people to develop a deeper appreciation of life.

The Buddhist connection has also found Judy, with her Tibetan friend Lama Kama Lhundup Rinpoche, guiding small groups on pilgrimage to the Tibetan communities around Dharamsala in the Himalayan foothills of Northern India. We will be visiting monasteries, holy caves and meeting Buddhist practitioners.
