Director of Temple Buddhist Center
Under the tutelage of the founder of Temple Buddhist Center, Victor brings over 15 years of practice to the cushion. Having attended many retreats and maintaining regular consultations with several of Kansas City's most beloved Buddhist teachers, Victor offers a depth of practice and keen insights into what is known as Personal Wisdom Training. This form of one to one consultation helps the practitioner understand areas where they may be stuck in limited thinking. Energetically, PWT gets to the source of fear or delusion and helps to purify and release energy knots that feed unskillful patterns of speech and behavior. Services are given on a Dana (love offering) basis.
