Laurie has had a long-time relationship and friendship with the Theravada monks since 2005. Years before the temple (NMR Meditation Center) opened to the public in 2014 the NMR meditation center was a small farmhouse where the monks lived and practiced. Laurie would go and “sit” with her own suffering and this was how her journey began with meditation and mindfulness. With this, meditation classes | retreats are usually held at the NMR Meditation Center, now the second largest Thai temple in the world in Raynham, MA.
