Claudia took Buddhist refuge in 2003. Following Lama Ole's and Hannah's request, she helped establish the Diamond Way Buddhist Center in Barcelona, Spain that same year. She worked for the development of the Dharma there until 2010, when she moved to Bogotá, Colombia where, together with few idealistic friends, she established the first live-in Diamond Way Buddhist Center of the country.

Lama Ole asked Claudia to teach in December 2014. Claudia is Brazilian and has been working in Communications and Marketing, and will also start studying to become a Health Coach.

What Is Buddhist Meditation?

In Buddhism, meditation means "effortlessly remaining in what is". This state may be brought about by calming and holding the mind, when compassion and wisdom are realized, or by working with our bodies' energy channels and meditating on light forms of Buddhas.
