About Lily Pad Sutra

 

Mettamorphsis had a Catholic upbringing and education, but found a home in the Dharma after fighting a serious illness for several years. In 2010 she decided to give up her house and home to live a life as a modern-day nomad, traveling from house sit to house sit, or as she prefers to call it, Lily padding. In her column Lily Pad Sutra, she describes what her experiences of lily padding have taught her about metta, mindfulness, mudita, and everything in between.
