June was a student of Suzuki Roshi, a Soto Zen Master, in the early seventies and met Chogyam Tungpa Rinpoche at Tassajara Zen Mountain Centre. After an interview with Trungpa Rinpoche she made the decision to study with him and went to Allenspark in Colorado where he taught the Six States of Bardo. She continued to study with Rinpoche until his parinirvana but his teachings continue to stay with her to this day. Part of Rinpoche’s legacy was Dharma Art, working towards creating an environment of harmony and sacredness, which inspired June to study Ikebana, the art of Japanese flower arranging and Chado, Japanese Tea Ceremony.
