The daughter of Polish-born Jews who survived the Holocaust, Ellen Korman Mains became a close student of the Tibetan meditation master, Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche in 1971. Early in her Buddhist training, Trungpa Rinpoche emphasized to Ellen the importance of maintaining a strong connection to her family and of working with this family karma. In 2006 she began exploring this legacy in the context of Buddhism and the teachings on basic goodness, and has spent extensive periods of time in Poland.

During this presentation and interactive workshop, Ellen will share some readings and perspectives on revisiting the Holocaust as both a Buddhist and a Jew, and the inspiration that can come from connecting with our ancestral legacies, whether traumatic or not.

Ellen Mains_DSC7016Ellen Korman Mains has taught within the Shambhala and Naropa communities for many years in both the U.S. and Europe. She is also a Focusing teacher and guide. Her upcoming memoir about this journey is called “Buried Rivers: A Survivor’s Daughter’s Spiritual Journey into the Holocaust.”
