Tracy hails originally from Harbin, China and now lives in Toronto, where she works in banking.
She met Kadam Dharma eight years ago in Toronto and is a regular at Kadampa Meditation Centre Canada.
Tracy is taking a year off from work to visit other Kadampa centres around the world.
We caught up with her at Manjushri KMC, where she attended the International Summer Festival followed by a five-week volunteering visit in the Kadampa Art Studio
