Lions Roar : July 2018
What is your practice tradition? Theravada Insight tradition, but I can’t deny that my previous practices slip in occasionally. What dharma books do you recommend? Satipatthana: The Direct Path to Realization by Analayo; Pure and Simple: The Extraordinary Teachings of a Thai Buddhist Lay Woman by Upasika Kee Nanyon; and The Buddha Before Buddhism by Gil Fronsdal. Your favorite virtue? I’m not sure I have it, but I truly love the word nobility. It makes me sit up straighter just thinking about it. Your principal poison? Definitely aversion. Beware, I’m probably judging you. Your idea of happiness? Family, friends, food, and a body of water—all at the same time. Your idea of misery? Loss of freedom, for myself as well as others. What’s the worst job you’ve ever had? When I was a wardrobe stylist, I had a job filming for fourteen- hour days outside on Lake Michigan in February. If not yourself, who would you be? My Rhodesian Ridgeback, who’s been sleeping comfortably at my feet while I’ve been tirelessly working for the last six hours. Name three of your heroes. Nina Simone, Maya Angelou, and James Baldwin. Your favorite author? Toni Morrison. I’ve read most of her books at least five times. Your favorite musician or group? Jimi Hendrix has made it through all phases of my life. I love “The Wind Cries Mary.” Your favorite current TV show? A teen drama called The Fosters. It addresses almost every important social, racial, and political issue in a very dramatic way. I’m hooked. What’s for dinner? Anything that I can put hot sauce on. A motto that represents you? “As long as poverty, injustice, and gross inequality persist in our world, none of us can truly rest.” —Nelson Mandela MEET A TEACHER JoAnna Hardy I WAS BORN IN PASADENA, California, and grew up in a mixed black/Sicilian Catholic household with two brothers and a large extended family. My rebellious punk rock youth led me down a path of pain and destruction. But, fast forward, I found freedom from a tragic end due to the depth and safety I felt in my reflective time. I explored prayer, shamanism, the red road, Kriya Yoga, and, finally, the buddhadharma. Multiple cities, three marriages, and two kids later, I am a happy dharma teacher with a beautiful home, friends, and family. Trained and empowered to teach in the IMS/Spirit Rock lin- eage, I’m passionate about sharing the dharma with tradition- ally underrepresented communities, in particular with people of color and at-risk youth. Currently, I’m helping create a racially aware and integrated Against the Stream Buddhist Meditation Society and, through the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies, I’m co-teaching a fantastic program called “Race and Dharma: Wak- ing up in the Racialized World Around You.” ♦ MEGUMIYOSHIDA LION’S ROAR | JULY 2018 33 CULTURE • LIFE • PRACTICE
