In 1995 she meet Lama Gangchen and becomes his disciple and practitioner of his teachings.

Making Peace with Death
For people afflicted by grave or terminal illnesses, words unsaid, hidden truths, doubts and fears have strong negative side effects, while the side effects of sincerity, of open talk and of a valid spirituality are positive – not only for the mind, but also for the body of the patient.
