Helen Foster is a meditation and dharma teacher who has practised for over 40 years, and has been given instruction to teach by her root teacher Lama Mark Webber. Her studies have been centred around the classical foundations of Buddhadharma, including deep retreats in Abhidhamma, Vajrayogini, Mahamudra, Ngon-dro and multiple other Vajarana practices of the Kama Kagyu lineage. She has studied with The Venerable Tensing Dorje Namgyal Rinpoche and more recently the Drikung Kagyu teachings of H. E. Lho Ontul Rinpoche.
She is currently co-chair of Crystal Mountain society. While living on Galiano Island, Helen worked as a weaver and fabric artist, studied Iyengar Yoga with Maureen Carruthers, practised as a breathing coach for home births.
While not on retreat or travelling (including studying 'Mahamudra in Motion" with Prapto in Java, 2008, Varjayogini in a Lamaruyu Monastery Ledakh 2005, and Tibet in 2010), she lives and gardens on Bowen Island with her partner, also a seasoned, life-long dharma practitioner.
