Jitindriya (Loraine Keats) has practised Buddhist meditation and spiritual enquiry for over 30 years, 17 of which as a Buddhist nun in the Thai Forest Tradition of Ajahn Chah and Ajahn Sumedho. During that time Jitindriya offered teachings to the monastic and lay communities in the UK, USA, Australia, and elsewhere. After leaving the monastic order, Jitindriya gained a Master’s degree in Buddhist/Mindfulness Based Psychotherapy with the Karuna Institute in the UK and now has a private practice in northern NSW, Australia, where she lives with her partner. In both teaching and practice Jitindriya draws inspiration from the Pali Suttas and Forest Masters of the Theravadan Tradition, Dzogchen teachings of the Vajrayana tradition, and the non-dual teachings of various other traditions. Integrating Dhamma with psychotherapy and psychospiritual work is also an area of on-going professional interest for Jitindriya. She is a member of the teaching faculty of the Australian Association of Buddhist Counsellors and Psychotherapists (AABCAP).
