Cecilia was born in Mexico in 1970. Her first contact with Buddhism was at age 19 in the House of Tibet in Mexico. From that moment she began the practice of meditation. In 1991 she met her future teachers – Lama Ole Nydahl and Hannah and started practicing Diamond Way Buddhism.

In 1996, she went with Lama Ole and Hannah on a journey through Australia. Being already a psychologist, she also graduated her master’s degree in clinical psychology in Sydney. Living there for 3 years she actively participated in the life of the local center. From that moment she was travelling a lot with Lama Ole and Hannah in Australia, Latin America, Europe and the United States. She took an active part in creating meditation groups and Diamond Way Buddhist Centers in Mexico. She also helped to start the Diamond Way Center in Metepec.

Cecilia works as a clinical psychologist. She helps homeless animals, is fascinated by painting and is a fan of motorcycles. She currently lives with her husband in the small town of Lerma, close to Mexico City.
