Peggy has been practicing Vipassana Buddhism for 13 years and done many retreats, including a month long at Spirit Rock in 2011. Most recently she completed the two year program, Heavenly Messengers, 2013-2015 at Spirit Rock. Before that she did Stephen Levine's 'Year to Live' program. She facillitates a 'kalyana mitta' group through InsightLA in Rancho Palos Verdes. She has been a psychotherapist for 30 years, and is still in private practice. She has also been volunteering at Torrance Memorial Hospice for 5 years, currently facillitating bereavement groups. "At this time I am very inspired to open a dialogue about aging, illness and death. Opening to the Heavenly Messengers has the potential to transform."
