Brendan's Bio: Brendan’s earliest memories are of wandering as an orphan through war-torn Korea, bombs falling on all sides. Some years later he came to the US, adopted by the family of a US soldier. Before long, he resumed his wandering, becoming a ski bum and later a landscape gardener. Finally,
he dropped it all, and returned to pilgrimage in Asia, where he landed in India at the feet of some of the highest Tibetan lamas of our time. Thus commenced a life devoted to Buddhist practice, and today he is a respected teacher, in demand at many teaching centers. His own teachers include His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Chatral Rinpoche, and Sokste Rinpoche. Brendan gives few teachings each year and spends most of his time on retreat in his desert hermitage.
