About Ven. Mary Reavey

Led by a love of adventure and trekking, Mary Reavey was a staff nurse when she first encountered Buddhism at Kopan Monastery,  Nepal in 1978. Mary attended a month-long course taught by Lama Thubten Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche who emphasised the importance of meditation and taking complete responsibility for your own actions and their effects.

In 2001 Mary took ordination as a nun with Lama Zopa Rinpoche, then taught meditation and Buddhist philosophy at Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds, Buddhist centres in Preston, Liverpool, and at Armley Prison, Dumfries Prison, Leeds General Infirmary, St. James’ Hospital and Wheatfields Hospice where she held regular meditation sessions until 2012.

Over the years Ven Mary has undertaken and led many meditation retreats. She completed a one-year solitary retreat in 2014.

She continues to regularly teach at Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds, Jamyang Liverpool and in York. Ven Mary has recently moved to Jedburgh in order to live nearer to Land of Joy Retreat Centre where she regularly leads retreats.
