About the Artist – Dh. Akashavanda

After attending a practice day at Aryaloka in 2001, Akashavanda was delighted to have finally found her spiritual home. Akashavanda means “orchid in luminous space” – a name given to her by Dayalocana at her 2008 ordination in Spain. Her practice is inspired by the mystical, nondual Dzogchen teachings.

Akashavanda has two adult children, four adorable grandchildren, and lives in Eliot, Maine with her husband. Hopefully her last job before retirement is managing the commuteSMARTseacoast program, which encourages people to use sustainable transportation.
