She teaches regularly at Gaia House in Newton Abbot (where she was a founding member), in Scotland at Findhorn, throughout the US, as well as leading regular retreats in Switzerland and South Africa.Review:
'The women and men who read this book can take great heart. Martine Batchelor has recorded unique and beautiful voices of feminine Dharma. These awakenings in the midst of snow caves, family life, arts and austerity, intimacy and celibacy, bring alive the blessings and true medicine of the Buddha.' Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart and After the Ecstasy, the Laundry 'Here is teaching with a difference, for it is from a woman's point of view. Many of the teachers are remarkable nuns, and their advice is both creative and profound. This is a book not to be missed by any Buddhist.' Anne Bancroft, author of Women in Search of the Sacred 'Here wisdom and practice come alive with concrete, idiosyncratic experience -- no mystification here and no nonsense, just the quiet excitement of liberated voices.' Joanna Macy, author of World as Love, World as Self
