The centre is in this world to educate people … giving education in how to practice kindness toward others in everyday life.” — Lama Zopa Rinpoche, founder LTC

About the presenter: Miffi Maxmillion runs the spiritual program and is an FPMT registered teacher. She left behind a thriving haute couture and costume business in Melbourne, when her mother Inta Mckimm (who started LTC) became sick with cancer in 1997. Packing her bags for two weeks, she is still here over twenty years later! Miffi was brought up a Buddhist and had the great good fortune to play with Lama Yeshe as a child, and his hook of compassion sustained her through the many rebellious stages of growing up. Miffi’s passion is in bridging the seemingly disparate worlds of modern life and the rich inner experience of Buddhist practice. She readily admits to watching far too much late night TV and is an avid New Yorker Magazine reader.
