Dateline: Not a nun, not an abbess, just an average American Buddhist
Marina is an average American Buddhist, creator of the Average Buddhist blog (www.averagebuddhist.com) and author of The Average Buddhist Explores the Dharma, a humorous introduction to Buddhist principles for an American audience.
Marina is not a nun or a Rinpoche, she has no claim to having achieved enlightenment. She simply strives to: - Stay awake - Stop using the teachings against herself - Avoid turning Buddhism into an otherworldly cultural smorgasbord and just be okay with having an American Buddhist experience - Accept that she'll always be a spiritual hybrid
In Marina's professional life, she is a voice & singing teacher and voice-specialized speech-language pathologist. Having been through the major academic medical center "thing", she is now in private practice. She writes about voice and speech topics on her blog at blog.Voicewize.com.
Marina has a very strong spiritual connection to the voice and to humanity as a collection of energetic beings.
