Jenny came to the United States from her native England at the age of twenty-two. Expecting to stay for a few months and then return to England, she has lived here ever since.
In 1980 she met the Tibetan teacher and meditation master, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and became his student, studying intensively with him until his death in 1987. She was authorized by him to teach. After his death Jenny felt a great longing to deepen her understanding, and together with her husband Brent, entered a three-year retreat at Gampo Abbey in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
After the retreat she continued studying with a number of remarkable teachers of the Mahamudra, Shambhala and Dzogchen lineages.
She teachers public programs; leads retreats; and meets individually with people. For thirteen years she has been adjunct faculty at Naropa University in Colorado, where she leads retreats on The Five Buddha Families, and working with the energy of the emotions.
In 2010 she met her teacher Anam Thubten, and was also ordained by him as a teacher.
She lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with her husband. Together they host Dharmata Santa Fe email@example.com a bi-weekly gathering of live broadcast teachings of Anam Thubten. They are both resident teachers.
