Vipassana Insight Meditation
I am a senior teacher in the Vipassana Insight tradition and lead regular retreats throughout Australia, New Zealand and India. I am the founder and guiding teacher of the Kuan Yin Meditation Centre Inc. in Lismore, which is a dedicated non sectarian space for spiritual practice. In 1999 I set up a Vipassana Insight group in Sydney called the Blue Gum Sangha which meets weekly on the north shore. I mentor and support several other Apprentice teachers in the Insight tradition.
I am authorised to teach in two different Buddhist traditions - Zen Buddhism and the Vipassana Insight tradition. I have been practicing Buddhist meditation for over 30 years and received dharma transmission in 1996 in the Diamond Sangha Zen tradition. I am the Spiritual Director and resident teacher of the Sydney Zen Centre, and lead regular intensive Zen Sesshins in Sydney & Melbourne. I presently supervise four other Apprentice teachers in the Zen tradition.
