Maitreyi was ordained in 1989, one of the first women to be ordained by a woman in the Triratna Buddhist Order. She was a founder member of Bodywise Health Centre in London where she worked as an Alexander Technique teacher before moving to Tiratanaloka in 1997. Since then she has spent about ten years looking after her elderly mother in North Wales and so was not very involved in running retreats here during that time. She is is a public preceptor. She loves exploring the Dharma through study, discussion and whatever creative forms enable it to be expressed and understood more fully.
