Venerable Sarah Thresher (Tenzin Yiwong) was born in London, England in 1960, and earned her Bachelor's degree in 1982. Shortly afterwards, she met the Buddha's teachings at Kopan Monastery, Nepal, where she took refuge with LamaThubten Yeshe. Since then, she has studied with many great masters and was ordained by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 1986.

After working as an editor for Wisdom Publications for nine years, she began teaching in 1992 and since then has taught in countries around the world. More recently, as Resident Teacher of Land of Medicine Buddha, she helped organize the highly successful visit of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Mountain View, California in 2001. At the request of her teacher, Kyabje Zopa Rinpoche, she now travels and teaches full-time throughout the world.

Ven. Sarah's experiential way of presenting the Buddhist path stimulates inward reflection and introduces new ways of perceiving that can guite literally revolutionize our lives. The goal is a deepening of wisdom and compassion, a relaxed open heart, a peaceful mind, and a more realistic view of ourselves.

Ven. Sarah ia currently teaching in Mongolia.
