Lama Christie McNally: Two as One
Lama Christie McNally has trained in Tibetan monasteries in India and Nepal to receive a Geshe degree, which traditionally takes 20 years of studying. She is one of the first Western women to be recognized as a Lama and has begun to change the face of Buddhism that has historically been predominantly male.
From 2000 to 2003, Lama Christie completed a traditional Great Retreat of 3 years, 3 months, and 3 days of silence and meditation, in the wilderness of the southern Arizona desert.
Lama Christie has also co-founded the Yoga Studies Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing yoga wisdom to the world, by offering worldwide courses in both asana training and yoga philosophy.
Last December, Lama Christie lead 50 people into deep solitary retreat, for three years, three months, and three days. Their goal is peaceâ€”both to the world, and within themselves.
Recently, Lama Christie has also written Tibetan Book of Meditation, which is a synthesis of all the great Tibetan commentaries on meditation as it was passed down from great teachers to Lama Christie McNally.
In this video, Lama Christie talks about why two people yoga is better then one person yoga. "Forces combine, and there is a magic there when two come together" Lama Christie says. Its all about bliss, enjoyment, and love in an innocent and non sexual way for Lama Christie.
