A Day in the Dharma with WangmoDixey, executive director of Berkeley’sDharma College

Her daily life at an institution that brings dharma to modern life

8.30: a.m. Every morning I walk through UC Berkeley’s campus to reach Dharma College. It’s a reminder that Dharma College is not just some separate “holy” space but is part of the larger community as well.

11.30: a.m. My office work is a bit of a balancing act—besides being executive director of Dharma College, I am also executive director of the Light of Buddhadharma Foundation International and president of the International Buddhist Association of America.

12.00: p.m. From : 12.00 to 12.30 every Friday, Dharma College hosts a meditation class called “Promoting Inner Resilience,” and since it’s virtual we’re able to connect with people all over the world.

1.00: p.m. Before our daily staff lunch, we each take turns leading a brief pre meal blessing, which is a lovely way for us all to share our personal expressions of gratitude!

5.00: p.m. Dharma College’s main temple is usually reserved for special events, but I like to go there by myself from time to time and pay my respects at the altar.
